Martin Mikayelyan is one of the masters and pillars of Armenian high modernism architecture. Its multifaceted design activities are based on profound scientific research to propose and implement the best innovative technical, functional and health solutions. M. Mikayelyan was a great connoisseur of resort architecture. The largest sanatoriums of the republic, which are still in operation today, belong to his author's or participative pencil.
Being a specialist of complex thinking and all-rounded expertise, Mikayelyan was also a city planner, he created the city of Metsamor almost completely and the master plan of the city of Hrazdan.
With all his modernist and innovative, scientific thinking, Mikayelyan worked in the tonality of aesthetics characteristic of traditional Armenian architecture and tried to convey traditional artistic motifs made in the modernized spirit to otherwise strict and concise modernist structures. He, like Israelyan, was aware of the limitations of cold and inhumane modernism and tried to use the achievements of modernism in accordance with the material and structure, yet combine it with traditional stone artistry.
