The building designed by architects Alexey Shchusev and G. Yakovlev for the M. V. Lomonosov Mechanical Institute was completed in 1934. However, soon after construction was completed, it was transferred to the V. I. Lenin Political-Military Academy, which medals decorate the facade. The complex consists of three buildings and includes the remains of old structures that stood here before 1934 – if you look closely, you can notice this. Today it houses the Military University of the Ministry of Defence of Russian Federation.
