Urban night lighting should pay more attention to functional lighting
At the 2014 APEC meeting, Beijing's night scene lighting did not have too many fancy decorations. It was simple and generous, making people feel very comfortable. This night scene lighting has no other highlights except the atmosphere.
In this APEC meeting, I adhered to the concept of thrift and energy saving. Therefore, I did not design too much exterior lighting. Instead, I used the light-transparent lighting design method appropriately, using the lighting design effect of the interior of the building. Create a beautiful view of Beijing at night. In this regard, lighting design experts said that some beautiful urban night scenes, many of which are expressed through the form of internal transparency, through such color rendering, more simple and atmospheric.
Some people think that night lighting should make people feel peaceful, comfortable, quiet and soft, but some urban lighting projects make people feel dry. According to experts in lighting design, some cities put night scenes. Lighting has become a place of entertainment. This way is actually very earthy.

Therefore, there is a lot of controversy about night lighting, because urban lighting requires a lot of energy, but on the other hand, for a city, night lighting is Reflecting the symbol of a city's prosperity, can night lighting be able to achieve energy saving and gorgeous coexistence? Night lighting can indeed reflect the prosperity of a region, but gorgeous should be adequate, excessively gorgeous will increase energy consumption. Experts in lighting design suggest that urban lighting projects should best distinguish between weekday and holiday lighting modes. In this way, energy conservation and gorgeousness can coexist.
