Deconstruction in architecture is like a symbol of liberty. The French philosopher Jacques Derrida started the idea basically in language, and then his idea spread to reach architecture. Deconstruction move produced unique differentiated buildings, where difference was the main idea behind deconstruction. This actually made a deep debate, whether deconstruction was an out of the box philosophy or just a strange architectural composition. The research addressed that this kind of architecture needs complete architectural education to value the philosophy behind it, in addition to highlight how students of architecture in both (juniors level and seniors level), how they perceive deconstruction; an experimental approach was used to find out if the scientific material given in architectural theories about deconstruction may affect the perception levels of the students, these students joined the architectural program at faculty of engineering, Zagazig University, Egypt, and the experiment applied on selected pioneers of deconstruction famous buildings.
