Text description provided by the architects. Located in Strasbourg, the school is responsible for the initial and continuing training of senior civil servants leading the major territorial authorities and their public institutions. INET is an organization that belongs to the National Center for the Territorial Public Service (CNFPT).

The project’s configuration has taken into consideration the urban, functional, and symbolic constraints of the program: the constructed mass of the project distinguishes it at the angle formed by the route du Rhin and the rue Edmond Michelet. Teaching areas extend horizontally around the inner courtyard, characterized by the large classrooms that attract large audiences. The second volume, consisting of four levels, hangs over the first and distinguishes our building on the city block’s angle. This section is dedicated exclusively to office functions.
