Pa.LaC.E. architecture group’s first monograph documents the “Paris Hermitage”, a building serving as a large temporal oscillator constituted by quartz articulations. Citizens visit the Hermitage to live and study while restoring their rhythms of work, rest, and wakefulness. Original plans, video stills, and digital renderings—integrated with reference imagery—detail the site’s history, the use of its spaces, and the effect on those who inhabit it.
