RWANDA | Kigali | Kigali Convention Centre & Radisson Blu Hotel | U/C

Rezidor announces the Radisson Blu Hotel & Convention Centre, Kigali, Rwanda


The Rezidor Hotel Group has continued to expand its presence in Africa with the announcement of the Radisson Blu Hotel & Convention Centre, Kigali, Rwanda scheduled to open in 2012.

Rezidor has numerous hotels under development in major cities across Africa. In 2010 alone, the group plans the openings of Radisson Blu hotels in Johannesburg and Cape Town (South Africa), Lagos (Nigeria), Addis Ababa (Ethiopia), Maputo (Mozambique) and Lusaka (Zambia).

“This signing symbolizes the new optimism investors have in Rwanda, and further underlines our strong commitment to Africa – this emerging and promising continent is one of our key areas for future business development,” comments Kurt Ritter, President & CEO of Rezidor.



The new Radisson Blu Hotel & Convention Centre, Kigali, Rwanda is a future landmark as part of a massive, mixed-use development in the Rwandan capital. Rezidor will oversee the hotel and convention centre. Besides 292 guest rooms, services will comprise six food and beverage outlets, a spa and fitness centre, an outdoor swimming pool, and boutique retail shops. The adjacent convention centre will have a net floor area of 32,000 square metres, which includes a multipurpose arena with a capacity of up to 2,600 delegates, seven sub-divisible conference rooms and 10 smaller meeting rooms.

The project is ideally located between the city centre and Kigali International Airport. The surrounding area is one of the most popular areas of the capital, in proximity to key government offices including the Ministry of Justice, the Supreme Court and Parliament.

Apparently is struggling to raise money to finance the project. Could it because Rwanda is no longer able to loot as much as mineral resources in the Congo as they used to?

Do you have more info on how the dome is constructed?
Because I had a similar research project a few years ago where you can construct nice domes with just one ribbon size... it's an esthetical and economical interesting design tool!
here is the link to my design that time http://stevenspapen.tumblr.com/post/...ntation-for-my
