"A city is alive, with daytime faces during the day and evenings at night." Li Yuejun, a well-known architect, began his description.
A city, a building, exists objectively during the day and night. It's easy to understand what it's like by the external attitude; at night, you need lights to reflect its personality.
As an architect, we are willing to give a humanized side of architecture: it is not just steel, concrete, eaves, windows, it has its own posture and personality. As the demand for urban nights increases, the lighting and lighting of the building become important.
However, in order to reflect the characteristics of the building at night, it is necessary to understand the characteristics of light in order to express the atmosphere of the space and express the expression of the building at night. In the specific work process, we hope that the sooner the lighting designer is involved, the better. In the numerous communication process of architects, owners, lighting designers and many other designers, the soul, style and temperament of the building can be better understood and instilled, so that the lighting designer can create the lighting that reflects the building temperament.
Lighting makes the building start to be "temperamental"
Please ask Li Yuejun about his successful combination of architecture and lighting. He said very broadly: In fact, every city is now doing landmark construction. At the same time as the building is completed, its night lighting and lighting have become a symbol. Part of sex. For example, the Louvre in France and the Oriental Pearl in Shanghai. He also specifically mentioned the TV tower in Guangzhou. Li Yuejun believes that with its complicated structure and unique shape, it is enough to infer that the lighting cannot be static, line outline or wall brightening, etc., more will be dotted lines. The combination of lighting techniques – and this is a trend in current and future lighting design – combines space, time, and dynamic and three-dimensionality.
“The early construction pursues the outstanding sense of standing out, and now it is better than the high-quality than the temperament. Lighting is an important means of presenting the architectural temperament.”
Lighting is more practical and skill than building
For the relationship between architects and lighting designers, Li Yuejun said humblely, ** there is no possibility that the architect is "***". Only the development of a project begins with the architect's vision. During the gradual evolution process, the interior, landscape, lighting and other design roles are slowly entering. The overall process is a co-ordination and integration process, with the participation of all personnel to better express the personality and style of the building itself.
Some people think that lighting is an appendage of architecture - just like the dessert after dinner, the purpose is only to use the gorgeous means to set off the atmosphere and atmosphere after the building is formed. Li Yuejun said: Lighting is not just a dazzling tactic, it has many practical and technical aspects. For example, circuits, lamps and other elements need to have real ability to be able to control as desired. Therefore, he hopes that the lighting design is real and skillful, and can be added to the building in essence.
