Popularly, the RAS headquarter is called "the golden brains" for a typical ornate composition on the roof of the 25-storey building: the geometrical design of glass and anodized aluminum with embossed bronze crown. The erection of the building was conducted in 1970s-80s by the architect J.P. Platnov, who later became the chief architect of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
