LINEA LIGHT GROUP_ITALY: LIGHTS UP XINSHOUGANG BRIDGE IN CHINA
At 639 meters long and almost 55 meters wide at its broadest point, the bridge has 8 lanes with a main span reaching a height of 280 meters. Near Lianshi Lake, the Xinshougang Bridge represents the last stretch of a 600-year-old road that connects the urban and suburban areas of Beijing, with the aim of speeding up transit to the city center. Built by China Railway Baoji Bridge Group under the China Railway Group Limited (also known as CREC), the bridge goes on to cross Shougang Industrial Park, once the hub of China’s steel industry and now the new site of the 2022 Winter Olympics.
Curated by the Beijing Municipal Engineering Design Research Institute in collaboration with the Frontera Lighting Design studio in Beijing, the lighting project saw the utilization of a selection of Linea Light Group professional solutions which, thanks to modern lines and minimal design, perfectly integrate into the structure and are able to ensure high performance. On both sides of the spans, the Prolamp RGBW projector with DMX control creates plays of light and evocative multicolor scenography. The narrow spot optics allow for a precise and well-defined light beam.
To illuminate the pedestrian sidewalk beneath the bridge, the Beret recessed ground spotlights were chosen, also being ideal for highlighting details. The added bonuses? They are small in size, robust and utilize AquaStop technology.
Then, installed to shine light on the entire lower part of the bridge and all along its extent is the Paseo transparent polycarbonate bar, customized with a color temperature of 4500K and supplied both recessed into the ground and with elliptical optics that direct the light beam along the entire length without light dispersion. Finally, the Paseo bars are also found along the handrails of the lateral stairways. Recessed within, they perfectly integrate into the structure, ensuring only the beam of light is visible.
