Artist Nguyen Thu Thuy, author of the Hanoi Ceramic Road, used a modern graphic style to depict the iconic architectural works of Vietnam and Australia on the 2.6m x 7.2m mural.

The Sydney Opera House is at the center of the mural appearing in fresh colors and bold lines.

Next to the Sydney Opera House, the mural depicts the Hanoi Opera House. Modeled after the Opera Garnier in Paris but smaller in size and built with materials more suited to the climate of northern Vietnam, it was begun by the French in 1901 and completed in 1911. Designed by Harlay and Broyer, the Opera House is characterized by a bold French neoclassical style.

In addition to the Hanoi Opera House, artist Thu Thuy also shows the One Pillar Pagoda, The Huc Bridge and St. Joseph's Cathedral, the typical architectural works of Hanoi.

On the background of modern skyscrapers covered with bright colors, the artist presents architectural works in a decorative graphic style with bright colors.
