The Center of Dialogue is designed as one-storey high building, composed of 2 volumes housing the exhibition spaces with conferences room and cafe. These two parts are connected by the temporary exhibition space, which can be accessed from the side of Solidarity Square and the church.

The building layout is related to the design of the square and varies in character depending on the function applied.

The Center itself is located in the eastern part of the square, which is a gesture of respect towards the existing and the historical frontages.

The facade of hand-shaped brick gives some sculptural quality to the building, which is strengthened by the diffuse pattern. The brick is composed with glass and corten steel.
