Design of landscape lighting enhancement and lanterns renovation at Tian'anmen Square (Tsinghua Tongheng Planning & Design Institute Co Ltd)
The renovation of landscape lighting and lanterns at Tian'anmen Square restores the gate tower and gable's real color, Chinese red, which can be clearly seen at night. It solved the problem of glare and avoided blinding bright spots for human eyes. Meanwhile, the lighting devices elusively hide in vegetation and building components, and unlikely to be seen in daytime.
Moreover, the renovation will largely cut power consumption by as much as two thirds of the original.
