The finished visual appearance of buildings that exhibit deconstructivist “styles” is characterized by unpredictability and controlled chaos,” says Wiki.

  • Michael Murphy’s work is inspired by architecture, built and imagined. Formally educated and trained as an architect he has taken a professional detour and attempts to re-imagine the built landscape via personal design studies and various avenues of rendering.
