Oblique Time With Claude Parent

Claude Parent - Oblique Time With Claude Parent
This publication presents an extended interview with the French architect Claude Parent (1923–2016) by curator Mai Abu ElDahab and visual artist Benjamin Seror that took place between 2013 and 2015. It features a wide selection of drawings by Parent.
Committed to experimentation throughout his life, Claude Parent questioned his field and his own practice in his unique polemical and provocative manner motivated by his desire to see ideas circulate and conventions challenged. The book is based on transcription of conversations allowing Parent's unique storytelling voice and style to come through.
Claude Parent (1923-2016) is a French architect. He is known for his defense of the oblique function in architecture. In 1963, Parent teamed up with Paul Virilio to found the group Architecture Principe (1963-1968). The church Sainte-Bernadette du Banlay (Nevers), the theater Le Monfort (Paris), the Villa André-Bloc (Antibes) and the Roissy Aircraft are among its most emblematic achievements.
Edited by Mai Abu ElDahab and Benjamin Seror.
