The Assembly Hall is located in the central area of the square figure “8” structure. It is built with steel-reinforced concrete to withstand strong earthquakes. The long arched trusses around the room reduce the number of columns needed but still allow the columns to withstand the axial forces of such a tall room. At 24 meters wide and 4.5 meters tall, the room was among the most advanced architectural feats of its time.
The thick red carpet and the acoustic fabric lining the walls and columns beautify the room while absorbing echoes. The multifunctional Assembly Hall is used to receive the premier’s guests and to hold group events, cabinet handover ceremonies and other large gatherings.
