The Monument to the People’s Heroes was built in 1993. It is a “red” landmark building in memory of the revolutionary martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the liberation of Shanghai in 1840. In the shape of the building, the three optimistic pillars rising from the ground are like speechless monuments, remembering the immortal martyrs who sacrificed gloriously during the Opium War, the May Fourth Movement, and the War of Liberation.
In the lighting renovation of the building, for the irregular shape of the tower, Signify chose high-quality high-power CK ColorReach floodlights and designed three beam angle combinations. This product’s precise optical control and professional color management technology evenly illuminate the towering tower, showing an excellent red lighting effect.
Signify’s CK ColorGraze linear wall washer is evenly illuminated under the viewing platform of the building. Through asymmetric optical design and professional color management technology, perfect color presentation is achieved, reflecting the unique beauty of the building at the same time, red light three different lighting modes are perfectly matched to evoke the reminiscence of the heroic deeds of the martyrs in various historical periods by citizens and tourists, and welcome the centenary of the founding of the party with a brand new look.
In addition, because the memorial tower is located on the bank of the Huangpu River, it is always in a humid environment and exposed to wind, sun, and rain. It has extremely high requirements for lamps. The CK series lamps selected by Signify have a high protection level, escorting the high-quality and perfect landscape effect of the landmark building at night.
