Institute of Stone and Silicates is an 11- story building built in the era of Soviet Modernism. It is named by the Research Institute of Stone and Silicates established in 1961 which studies natural stone materials and silicate raw materials, their use in construction, chemical structures and ways to recycle them. Those volcanic materials found in Armenia are also a part of the building's facade in a form of a tilework. The building is now neglected because the institute has been moved to another place.
