    Text description provided by the architects. SKOLKOVO’s design is based upon the accommodation, reflection and promotion of the innovatory practice-based approach to management of the Moscow International Business School. Due to its peripheral location and susceptibility to harshly cold winters the School functions as an independent community. The main elements of the building are assembled as a single entity in which a range of facilities are internally connected and made accessible without going outside.

    Accomodation is included in the building’s design; for students, teaching and administrative staff, as well as those on short courses or attending conferences. The core of the building is the Disc where suites of teaching spaces, a congress centre, and supporting facilities form an internal cityscape bounded by a circular enclosure, an arrangement, which is intended to suggest openness, cohesion and an absence of hierarchy. Its roof supports the Wellness Centre, the Administration Tower and residential buildings.

    Externally, the walls of the Disc address the surrounding landscape with unbroken continuity and locate the access road, which serves a series of entrances at ground level. Pedestrian access to the Disc is also possible via several slow ramps from various points in the landscape. This arrangement works to preserve he landscape of the Setun River.
