History of the building

In 1964, 13 years after the creation of the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, construction of the Main Building began. During that time instructors and their families lived in a standard two-storey house, located close to the new construction site.


MIPT’s Main Building was based on a design for a hospital prepared for one African country, which explains its internal structure.
