This building is an example of 'architecture parlante', which translates to English as "speaking architecture". It is "an architectural theory popular in Revolutionary France which linked the formal development and ornamentation of a building to the expression and representation of its function." Gargus, Ideas of Order: A formal approach to architecture, p.347.
