Cant (architecture)

Cant or canted in architecture is an angled (oblique) line or surface particularly which cuts off a corner.

Canted facades are a typical of, but not exclusive to, Baroque architecture. The angle breaking the facade is less than a right angle thus enabling a canted facade to be viewed as, and remain, one composition. Bay windows frequently have canted sides.
