In 2016, Rwanda’s capital city unveiled the new Kigali Convention Centre (KCC), which became one of the most recognizable modern structures in Africa.

Distinguished by its translucent dome, the Kigali Convention Centre, standing alongside the adjoining 5-star Radisson Blu Hotel, is the most iconic and modern convention center in all of Africa. It's architecturally modeled after a traditional Rwandan king’s palace, with a large dome as the main feature. KCC floor plan
