As night falls and the lights come on, along the coastline of “Two Rivers and One Bay”, several landmark buildings simultaneously turn on the “Light Show”, and the prosperity and tranquility collide to create a bright night scene. On the eve of the May Day holiday, the lighting improvement projects on both sides of the Jinjiang and Luoyang Rivers in Quanzhou, Fujian were fully lit, continuously improving the city’s appearance and quality, and becoming the city’s new business card.
Dress up the “two rivers and two banks” with picturesque lights on the 36-kilometer shoreline
Since last year, the three-year action to improve the lighting of the central urban area has surged in Quanzhou, focusing on promoting the lighting improvement of “portal corridors, mountain line water systems, ancient city streets and alleys, and the New District around the Bay”, expanding the cultural context of Quanzhou Maritime Silk Road and the cultural heritage of the world. Influence and attractiveness. As a key project of this action plan, the lighting improvement project for the east area of Donghai City and the banks of Jinjiang and Luoyang Rivers came into being.
Starting from Jinji Barrage New Gate in the west, expanding eastward along the river, and reaching Luoyang Qiaotou Gate in the north, the 36-kilometer coastline on both sides of the two rivers is planned and designed in a unified manner. The organic combination of “core detonation”, 7 bridges such as Tian’an Bridge and Zaitong Bridge, 7 parks such as Beibinjiang and Jiangnan, facades along Donghai Street and 13 pedestrian overpasses, and nearly a thousand buildings are connected by points and lines. The promotion of noodles is connected in series to form a centralized display of “Two Rivers and One Bay”.
Aiming at the current situation of the region, the project is still making great efforts to enrich the urban texture level. The distant view emphasizes the spatial pattern of “mountain, city, and sea”. Viewing is from the perspective of citizens’ nighttime strolls, leisure and entertainment, enriching the interest and interaction of parks and squares along the line at night.
Interpretation of the three major elements of “Quanzhou Story” through ancient and modern times
On the Sunjiang Bridge, a long arched scroll unfolds slowly, and a picture scroll of China’s maritime trade in the Song and Yuan Dynasties leaps onto the “bridge”. Quanzhou cultural attractions such as Jiuri Mountain, Cliff Stone Carvings, and Laojun Rock in Qingyuan Mountain are presented one by one, creating a dazzling visual feast. The surrounding residents stopped to take pictures.
The Quanzhou element of Sunjiang Bridge is just a microcosm of the lighting improvement project on both sides of the river. In order to enrich the connotation of night scene lighting, the project incorporates three major Quanzhou elements such as “World Heritage Culture”, “Intangible Heritage Art” and “Quanzhou Spirit”. The theme gives a panoramic view of Quanzhou, a city full of pyrotechnics, poetry, and vitality, and tells the story of Quanzhou with light and shadow.
In line with the principle of “lighting up the whole and focusing on building”, in addition to Sunjiang Bridge, key areas such as Quanzhou Bridge, Shunji New Bridge, Zaitong Bridge, Tian’an Bridge, Taihe Plaza, and Donghai Central Business District have also passed “sound and light “, interpreting the development of Quanzhou from ancient times to the present, through the linkage with the lighting of surrounding buildings, forming a very diverse and charming night scene business card, adding a beautiful landscape to Quanzhou, the capital of cultural tourism.
