HÀ NỘI — Friends of Vietnam Heritage (FVH) will organise a cultural lecture on Hà Nội’s khu tập thể or condominiums on September 24.
Holding deep and special memories for many in Hà Nội, khu tập thể is one of the city’s iconic symbols. Between 1958 and 1990, condominium complexes covered over 4,000sq.m of Hà Nội’s urban area.
