In the context of this view, the construction has become the code of information, and become of the games between the sign exchange, and been written off materiality. On the other hand, in the context of western hegemony, a part of local architecture of contemporary expresses the praise of materiality through constructing and regain the confidence of regional culture discourse. Thus, information code together with construction has described the basic views of the contemporary architecture. The main thrust of this paper is to look for ontology of contemporary western architecture by the two views and form a critical ontology concept which is suitable for local architecture.The paper searches for the theory of clues of two views:the text of concept construction difference and "non-text of concept" construction difference, and shows the contradiction of difference in construction though discussion the ontology of the contemporary western architecture. This paper interprets the concept of architecture difference and its meaning, and analysis the performance of construction difference in a part of different works of which are the text of concept and "non-text of concept", and questions two different onto-logy epistemology though a part of works analysis; and looks for a critical ontology con-cept which is suitable for local contemporary architecture though comprehensive understanding of the two ontological criticism.
