EASE TRAINING CENTER|Strasbourg (67)
Learning centre for the pharmaceutical industrie | Construction of a Learning center to train people to work in aseptic and pharmaceutical environments. It includes clean rooms, laboratories, offices, teaching facilities.
The EASE (European Aseptic & Sterile Environment Training Center) Plant-School project was conceived around a concept of a building to train people on jobs that take place in white-rooms, following an idea imagined by the University of Strasbourg, Alsace BioValley and several local pharmaceutical companies.
The building follows the concept of a plant-school to reproduces every aspect of pharmaceutical production plant. Of the total 4,300m² that will be constructed, 2,500m² will be dedicated to clean room training facilities.
EASE will integrate everything that is expected from a production plant and will follow pharmaceutical’s Good Manufacturing Practice. This is the initial brief from Strasbourg University who foresaw in this unique learning center an unprecedented vocation to train, in real production conditions, people to work in aseptic environments.
We designed a façade that could exist both during the day and at night, that conveys the idea of a building that is transparent on its bowels, that shelters highly confined spaces but yet stays open as it is foremost a building to disseminate know-how, not an opaque and closed building that would protect a secret process.
