Palais des Congrès à Strasbourg 7.6&10
Like the Villa Savoye, the Palais des Congrès has pilotis, a free plan, and a roof garden (three of the Five Points of New Architecture), yet, in the Palais, each of these elements is distorted--there are column of two different diameters laid out on the structural grid, the plan is full of irregular shapes, and the roof garden is not flat and enclosed but rather expansive and sloping in several directions.
