The multidisciplinary educational center comprises three educational blocks: School, Sports, and Arts.
Architecturally, the new buildings have a unified design of streamlined spherical and ellipsoid shapes: a perfect solution to enclose spaces of different sizes in the smallest possible surface area. The ergonomics of spherical and ellipsoidal dome shells provides for an even distribution of natural loads—seismic, wind, and storm. In the Sochi region, this is an essential requirement. The streamlined outline visually diminishes the actual dimensions of the buildings and allows them to become an integral part of the coastal landscape without bringing a more urbanistic note. The architecture of the new buildings is consistent with the Olympic sports facilities, particularly with the Fisht Stadium, which is directly visible from the complex.
