Both the Dome, traditional hut shaped, and the Hotel Building, rush matlike façade, is inspired by local traditional figures. Similarly, landscaping is done to match the "thousandhill”Kigali natural landscape.

Main congress building has a dome, inspired by traditional housing hut (but more than 60 meters in diameter and 46 meters in height) does look magnificent from a distance with its translucent façade. In the night time, enhanced by RGB light plays as well as linear led lights all along the surface of egg-shaped dome; it definitely became the landmark that the city has looked for.
