This impressive building has been designed by architect David Adjaye, and represents a teaching and research institution for the Moscow School of Management. The institution is located in a wooded valley, a traditional campus if we can say so, which is perfect for the school.

The architects thought about a different approach for the architecture, playing with volumes and with the four buildings that cantilever over a large circular base. From outside, its external architecture seems to constantly change depending on the direction from which it is seen, but the practical and visual continuity is the provided by the 150 m disc that seems to float above the site. The building’s components are the four blocks that house a wellbeing centre, a hotel, the house administration,  and student accommodation, and the 150 metre-wide disc that host a restaurant at the centre. The disc also provides a conference centre with auditorium, there’s a protected car park and service area that can be found below and the roof of the disc is a landscaped open space.

The disc which supports the four blocks tries to minimise the impact of the development on the site, creating a soft visual impact of the lower stories of the development. The result is an impressive architecture piece, where students can learn and enjoy stacked recreational spaces with great views of the river.
