The Palace of the Radio Broadcasting, commonly referred to as the Radio Hall (Sala Radio) is a megalithic structure in Bucharest, built in the mid 20th century, during the communist regime, in order to accommodate a wide range of cultural events. A team of three architects was commissioned for this task. Thus, Tiberiu Ricci, Mihai Ricci and Leon Garcia had to face the challenge of combining the requirements of the practicability typical of a modern building with the standards of the classical architecture. The solution was to adapt the tenets of the classical contours to the necessities of the envisaged functionality.

The Palace of the Radio Broadcasting is worth including in the sightseeing tours of Bucharest, if not for anything else, than at least for making a complete idea about the artistic directions enforced by the communist regime in regard to the urban layout, substantiating the taste for megastructures so keenly cultivated for decades in Bucharest.
