QR85: The Central Hall of the National Assembly Building

The National Assembly Building was built in 2009 and put into use in 2014, located on Độc Lập Street, overlooking Hồ Chí Minh Mausoleum and next to Thăng Long Imperial Citadel. The Central Hall of the National Assembly Building covers 2,900 square meters in size, approaching the West buildings and facing Ba Đình Square. The Central Hall has a square shape containing the main meeting room area and the lobby, which has the function to receive guests and is the place to hold high-level ceremonies.

Around the main lobby in the North is the large banquet called Thăng Long Hall (a multi-functional room covering an area of 850 square meters. Depending on the number of attendees and the nature of the meeting, the banquet can remain as is or can be divided into two, or three smaller rooms with pull-out wooden partitions from the wall). In the East, there are smaller banquets called Hoa Cúc and Hoa Lan. From Độc Lập Street through the main entrance, following the red carpet, there are reception areas and greeting rooms for international guests called Hoa Đào, Hoa Mai and Hoa Sen. The Traditional Chamber of the National Assembly is in the Southeast direction of the building.

The main meeting room of the National Assembly is called Diên Hồng Hall, which is the meeting room we are standing right below. Diên Hồng Hall is a round cylinder, located in the center of the square block of the building, covered in green glass and supported by 8 oversized columns with special structure, each column of 15m height, 77 tons weight and the cross-sectional surface of 3.8m x 2.2m. These eight oval columns are carved with water wave features, reminding the Thủy Ba symbol in traditional sculpture. The columns surround the main hall, supporting Diên Hồng Hall like a precious crown. The meeting room has a slanted wall facing outward and a large lobby space at the entrance to cover the entire panoramic view of Ba Đình Square and Hồ Chí Minh Mausoleum.
