Pangloss means "the one who speaks all languages." It is a symbol of linguistic diversity. Pangloss was built in 2000 to house the University of Strasbourg's Languages and Communication department, the Institut International d'Études Françaises (IIEF), the Institut de Traduction et d'Interprétariat-Relations Internationales (ITI-RI) and the Service de Ressources et d'Autoformation en Langues Etrangères (SPIRAL).
The Patio, Portique and Atrium take their names from architectural features. The Patio provides a central open space at the heart of the building; the horizontal walkway between the two buildings gives the Portico its name; and the entrance to the Atrium consists of a long, glazed gallery running the length of the façade.
