Parent, Claude (French architect and writer, 1923-2016)

Note: French architect and Commandeur de la Légion d'honneur. In the 1960s, together with Paul Virilio he developed a theory known as Oblique architecture, or 'The Oblique Function,' founded on the principle of unbalance, manifested in the use of sloped surfaces and ramps in his built projects. With Virilio he wrote pamphlets including “Vivre à l’Oblique.” Parent developed a body of work that included nuclear power stations, shopping centers, and domestic projects. His theories and built projects proved to be influential to a following generation architects, including Jean Nouvel, who began his career as a collaborator with Parent. His use of cast concrete reflects an early professional experience with Le Corbusier, and has caused him sometimes to be considered part of the Brutalist movement.
