The building was built in 1783 at the city's expense, at the request of the intendant of Alsace, to serve as a hospital for civilians and soldiers alike. This building is in the Louis 16 style, characterized by straight, fine and well-worked lines giving a beautiful impression of lightness and elegance. It served as a military hospital during the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. It then served as a begging depot (the equivalent of our current social SAMU) for the Bas-Rhin department. In 1822 the building was handed over to the Ministry of Justice which first installed a central house for women there then a penitentiary center for men until its closure in 1987. The city bought the buildings. In 1996, a University Institute of Technology (IUT) was set up in the right part / while a large Media Library was opened in the left part in 2001.
Finally, you should know for the anecdote that before its transformation, this building served as a setting for the filming of the helicopter escape scene from the film “La fille de l’air” with Béatrice Dalle.
