Constructed in a wooden valley in Moscow, the building is subjected to harsh six-month winters. With such climatory restrictions, the exterior materials have unique weatherability properties. The herringbone patchwork design was created using various colors of Alucobond aluminum composite material.

The facility is a single disc shape with protruding parts atop the foundation, offering a unique view of the building at different visual perspectives. The foundation is two stories high and features teaching departments, a conference center and an auditorium.

The four-stacked buildings provide internal connectivity to allow easy accessibility without going outside. The four structures contain administrative office space, a Wellbeing Center, a five-star hotel and student housing.
