The idea of project is that a heavenly body flies down from the space and strikes a rock and tears it into four pieces. The building is projected with Deconstructivism style. Besides composition solution of the building is near to futurism and suprematism styles. The main line in both styles is cosmos and its overmaster. Interior of the building is also projected in these styles.

In main building there are satellite control center, its office and technical areas, administration, conference hall and canteen.
