Claude Parent & Paul Virilio - Function of the Oblique
Claude Parent and Paul Virilio looked at using oblique planes to create architecture of disequilibrium in an attempt to bring the habitat into a dynamic era of the body in movement.

“We wanted above all to create an “ordinary place” where experimentation rreplaces contemplation, where the architecture is experienced through movement and the quality of that movement. The purpose of the oblique was to encourage a constant awareness of gravity, bringing the body into a tactile relationship with the building.”
