Entry Description

Kaohsiung, a harbor city since hundred years ago, its marine characters and development history gave birth to the exterior appearance of the architecture of the music center - the shape of coral, dolphin, whale, and wave. The façade lighting design enhances the architectural concept and transforms the lighting effects into the interrelationship between light and water – reflection, refraction, and diffusion. Blue lights up-wash effect is used on the side elevations of the whale-like performance hall to generate a mysterious atmosphere of the whale’s cruising. RGB led presents the colorful coral zone and the sparkling led dots at the edge of the eaves indicate a vivid scenario for the movement of the coral. The main visual focus – the wave zone is accentuated with its hexagon elements. The dynamic of the wave is manipulated through the lighting control system program. The lighting design conceives the waterfront feature of the site and revitalizes the nighttime landscape of the harbor. Let light roam in the harbor space like music, conducting a colorful vision as if we were under the sea.
