The Log-O-Rithmic Slide Rule: A Retrospective

The Log-O-Rithmic Slide Rule is an ephemeral work created by architects Trix and Robert Haussmann.
In 1980, Robert Haussmann visited a sanatorium to recover from an illness. It was during this time, when he was physically unable to work, that the couple created The Log-O-Rithmic Slide Rule. This playful device is based on a very bureaucratic principle inspired by the OuLiPo movement. Due to its combinatory potential, it paradoxically creates infinite varieties of imaginative architecture, language and images.
