New Moscow University by Herzog & De Meuron
Skolkovo is a new urban community in Moscow, Russia, with a new University as its centerpiece. Designed by Herzog & De Meuron, the building is now open to students after five years of construction.
The outer ring – 280 meters in diameter – accommodates faculty offices, administration areas, and meeting spaces, while the inner rings house the teaching and learning facilities, with the main auditorium at the central crossing point.
The University is part of a community that will offer residents a vibrant and diverse mix of uses across five individual districts.
