have any of you heard about "the function of the oblique"
Claude Parent the polemist french architect had once seeked for a new architectural utopia,long before the contemporary hypersurfaces hallucinations!
the "diagonal" which he introduced it as a principal tension field of livable volume modifies the concepts of use of spaces created,"it blames the comfort of horizontality,it destroys the monopoly of orthogonality!
have any one of you heard about the mental "Tango" once exist between Claude Parent and the cultural theorist Paul Virillio,i'm sure that Jacques Pochoy can enlighten me more with this important experimental collaboration.
