Parent, Claude (1923– ). French architect who worked with Le Corbusier and was a contributor to L'Architecture d'aujourd'hui. His works include Vivre à l'Oblique, L'Aventure Urbaine (1970) and Cinq Réflexions sur l'Architecture (1972). He was responsible for the Commercial Centre, Sens (1970), among other buildings, and his visionary drawings of megastructures have affinities with the proposals of Archigram.
