Deconstructivism architecture is a form of architecture that had its naming due to the similarities and differences it had with the Russian movement of the 30's called ''Constructivism''. The movement of deconstructivism is usually characterized by abnormality and uncontrolled chaos used to used to show that society is confusing and insecure. While some architects of that movement made architectural works that could be classified as a deconstruction, the movement in and of itself is not. Mark Wigley, who made a PhD about deconstuctivism in philosophy and relation to architecture annotated that it had nothing to do with Deconstructions. So if you feel that an architectural work should be on here for deconstructing architecture, think twice.

Some tropes hold up certain genres (a story set in a court that isn't [[DeadlyDecadentCourt full of deadly intrigue]] probably won't be interesting), others are [[AppliedPhlebotinum handwaves]] or {{Plot Hole}}s that we accept for the sake of the story. A genre deconstruction, by making the story more realistic, will take these tropes to pieces or simply abandon them. Thus a genre deconstruction may often entail averting some tropes typical to the genre. However, deconstructing a trope by itself doesn't entail averting the trope. Quite the opposite; deconstructing a trope means the trope is played even straighter than normal and its consequences or cause explored in detail, usually for the purpose of irony, satire or straight up horror.

When an entire genre is deconstructed, it's usually not a subversion. ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'' and ''KingdomCome'' deconstructed superheroes by giving them realistic and often unfortunate motivations, goals, and results, but both made clear from their opening pages that these were not your grandparents' comic book stories--they weren't subverting the genre because they never purported to be a straight example of the genre in the first place.

In many cases a reconstruction is a deconstruction of the original deconstruction, pointing out the flaws of the deconstruction and why that doesn't have to be the end result.
