I think Asplund did what you say with the floor plane.....a slight pitch that was not noticeable except sub-consciously....to draw one thru a space, or towards an object such as an alter. Aalto may have done this as well.
Curved interior space has the effect of lacking scale and orientation, especially if the lighting is controlled. Without corners and shadow lines one cannot "grasp" the spatial limits. There are circular rooms and domes in classical architecture that exhibit this , though I can't name any for you.
