In 1972, Jacques Kalisz designed the Administrative Center of Pantin, nowadays used as the National Center for Dance. 
Considered a major work of brutalism, the building is structured around a central staircase. "Faux Raccord" is a short film that explores the possibility of mistakes as a source for creating new architectures. The film focuses on the central staircase of the building, and changes its perspective. By observing these returned images, the viewer discovers a place that seems familiar but just as unknown; in which the stairs reveal new spaces. A voice, the one of the staircase, tells us his story.
