Lights add ‘unforgettable’ scenes to visitors’ night life
Night life is an important symbol of a modern city.
The newly upgraded West Lake with its music fountain lighting system and the launch of a 3D light show make night life inHangzhou more colorful, and create a memorable visual effect for visitors.
In August, the city began its intelligent lighting project on the three islands of its most famous scene, Three PoolsMirroring theMoon.
Later, lights were installed on Yang Gong Di causeway, the walking path along the West Lake as well as the mountain area.
“It looks like a Chinese ink painting,” said Shao Ning, infrastructure division chief of the West Lake Scenic Area Management Committee.
In early July, the city unveiled a 3D light show on crowded Wulin Square in the downtown area, where people can enjoy the show without wearing 3D glasses.
The show, said to be Asia’s largest outdoor 3D light show, was projected onto the wall of the Zhejiang Exhibition Hall, equivalent in size to 10 IMAX screens. Theshowwillbestaged every night starting at 8 pm.
Zheng Jing, the Public Space Art Department director of The China Academy of Art, came up with the idea for the show early this year.
According to Zheng, the show on Wulin Square is designed for all weather conditions, and the stability of the equipmentregarding heat radiation, air quality filters, and humidity control must meet strict standards.
“The mist sprayer will rise automatically when the show is on, spraying mist to match the picture on the wall. The sprayer will automatically drop down to the ground when the show is off. We are applying for a patent for the world’s first Ultra High Pressure Mist Effect Lifting Module,” Zheng said.
“I hope the show will make all visitors experience an unforgettable night in Hangzhou,” Zheng added.
Public rental bicycles are available to foreign visitors in Hangzhou, with help of an audio system in English.
