Ba Dinh Hall

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' Giap died in October 2013, aged 102.
