Claude Parent

Claude Parent, born the 26th of February 1923 in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France, is a french architect. Teacher at the Architecture Special School in Paris, Parent trained in his studio the most famous name of french contemporary architecture, as Jean Nouvel.

Since the beginning of the 1960s, Claude Parent obliged himself to a rupture, by the apparition of discontinuity in his architectural language, driving him to invent a new architectural vocabulary with the birth of the "oblique function", replacing the traditional horizontal plane.

This preponderance of the oblique function is obvious in Claude Parent's indian ink drawings, exhibited at the Galerie Natalie Seroussi in 2010, the "Shield Cities".
