Elements of Landscape Lighting Design for Scenic Areas

Many tourist attractions are currently suffering from the phenomenon of "enjoying the scenery during the day and leaving at night". The image quality of the attractions at night is poor, the quality of landscape lighting is not high, and the overall landscape lighting of the scenic area lacks its own characteristics, which seriously restricts the development of various aspects of the scenic area. Scenic area landscape lighting is a special form of lighting, which requires higher natural and cultural characteristics, strict selection of lamps, and precise formulation of lighting engineering implementation standards. So, which factors should be considered together?


Landscape lighting design of the scenic area: unified planning, highlighting key points


The planning of the lighting of night tours in tourist attractions helps to vigorously develop the construction of cultural tourism in the scenic area. Combining creativity, technology, and art, integrating nature, lighting, and crowds, and focusing on the interaction between people, the environment, and works, it brings tourism and operational value to the audience, thus triggering a completely new night tourism form and huge commercial value.


Therefore, the lighting planning of the scenic area should highlight key points, be aesthetically pleasing, energy-saving and environmentally friendly, have appropriate illuminance, and be economically safe. Accurately grasp the selection of lighting sources. Use lamps with good heat dissipation, stable luminance, and long lifespan. Under the premise of meeting functional requirements, lighting facilities that are energy-saving, environmentally friendly, and in line with the energy development strategy can be used.


Landscape lighting design of the scenic area: adopt suitable light sources, and the illuminance should be moderate


Avoid excessive use of color tones and the use of colorful lighting techniques. This approach is not conducive to expressing the cultural and artistic connotation and natural colors of the lighting carriers, and it is also a significant waste of electrical energy. The ultimate result of this approach is to cause light pollution, which mainly manifests in causing "artificial daylight", directly affecting people's living habits, endangering human health; light pollution causes visual discomfort to vehicle drivers and pedestrians, leading to traffic accidents; light pollution affects the normal spatial observation of ground astronomical observation stations. Therefore, landscape lighting should aim to create a warm, peaceful and comfortable living environment, and the illuminance should be moderate.


Landscape lighting design of the scenic area: clear functions, spatial design with a sense of hierarchy


The functions of landscape lighting in the scenic area should be clear, and the places that should be illuminated, such as road signs, corners, roads, obstacles, and important landscapes, should be well-lit. Ensure safe usage, without the danger of high-temperature contact, obstructing movement, misleading pedestrian flow, or lamp detachment. Night landscape lighting uses the characteristics of light superposition, flow, semi-transparency, refraction, etc., to carry out secondary design of the daytime space in the scenic area; break the importance of conventional landscape nodes, arrange the inertia thinking of the light and dark spatial relationship, and create more delicate light effects for secondary nodes; use light to restore or rebuild the space boundaries that disappear at night, allowing the night landscape space to also have order.
