Lighting is indispensable for modern city life. In a modern city, the lighting project carries not only the role of lighting, but also the needs of social and commercial development.

What do you need to know about urban architectural lighting?

1. Strengthen the construction management of building lighting projects. 

The normal operation of building lighting engineering facilities and good lighting effects are critical to management. It mainly includes scientific management and legal management. At the same time, the use of modern control technology for scientific management can not only ensure the brightness and the integrity of the equipment, but also ensure that it is economical and practical to achieve the best results. The construction of urban night scene lighting projects must be tailored to local conditions, do within one's ability, and make full use of limited funds.

Urban building lighting engineering has a close relationship with architectural engineering design. In the design and construction process of construction projects, efforts should be made to integrate urban lighting engineering work. Work on municipal engineering, protection of key cultural relics, renovation of old communities, and renovation of building facades can all be carried out at the same time.

The urban lighting project is regarded as an important part of the urban environmental landscape design. Natural and man-made buildings constitute the urban environment landscape. They have the form of giants, but also contain insignificant details. Some emphasize practical functions, and some emphasize decoration and ornamental value. It has shifted from focusing on function in the past to focusing on both practicality and aesthetics. In the future, we must continue, standardize, expand the scope of implementation in a planned way, and improve the level of technology and art.

2. Design night landscape according to city function. 

According to the requirements of the city's overall planning, the night scene is designed to conform to the functional characteristics of the city and the building. Different functional properties of streets and venues, specific environments and buildings, and their lighting should have different atmospheres, different brightness or style requirements.

Night scene lighting should be considered comprehensively according to city planning. As an integral part of urban planning, urban night scene lighting should be closely integrated with urban planning. According to the overall plan, the focus is on the construction of urban lighting projects, which are iconic projects that reflect the characteristics of the city. Not only are the lighting functions reasonable, but also the artistic level is high, and the finishing touch has become a classic representative of the city's image.

The primary goal of the lighting project is to provide overall lighting at night to meet the most basic visual recognition requirements, and the light level of ambient lighting is related to the amount of ambient light. If the space ambient lighting is much lower than the job lighting, the job and the environment The brightness contrast between the two is relatively large. Therefore, the amount of ambient light can also produce a sense of hierarchy. Focused lighting is also a way to highlight the level of lighting projects.It is usually used for projects that require high lighting style. Its main purpose is to illuminate objects and exhibits such as artworks and architectural details. In most cases, the light level is adjustable. In centralized lighting, track lights are the most common form. It is widely used in museums, art galleries, adjustable centralized lighting, as well as wall washers, spotlights and stage lighting equipment. Focused lighting does not affect other lighting levels. It is designed to attract the observer's attention and make it focus on the exhibits rather than the beam itself.
