Cant (or Canted) is the architectural term describing part, or segment, of a facade which is at an angle to another part of the same facade. The angle breaking the facade is less than a right angle thus enabling a canted facade to be viewed as, and remain, one composition.
Canted facades are a typical of, but not exclusive to Baroque architecture.
