The old National Assembly Building (Nhà Quốc hội), also Ba Đình Hall (Hội trường Ba Đình), was a public large building, located on Ba Dinh Square across the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, in Hanoi, Vietnam. The building was used by the National Assembly of Vietnam for its sessions and other official functions. One of the architects was Nguyễn Cao Luyện (1907–1987, vi). The hall was demolished in 2008 to make room for a new parliament house. However archaeological remains of the old imperial city of Hanoi, Thang Long, were found on the site and therefore the construction of a new building on the site was delayed. General Giap, credited with defeating the US occupiers in the American War objected to the demolition of 'Ba Đình Hall'.

VN Parliament


The Communist Party represents some 90% of the members of the National Assembly, with its Central Committee and Politburo dominating the country’s politics. The National Assembly met at the predecessor building "Ba Đình Hall" until its demolition in 2008. The new parliament planned by GMP architects from Hamburg is currently under construction and is scheduled to open in August 2014.
