Within this paper I focus on the use of Deconstructivism in Architecture, specifically in a museum setting. I ask if the use of Deconstruction in a museum's design has any effect on how the museum sets up its objects and displays, and if these displays have any effect on the perception of the objects within the museum. I also have found that the use of Deconstructivism is reflective of the shifting purpose in the museum, and the attitudes towards the museum as a cultural institution.
