Signify illuminates Vietnam’s former Imperial City of Huế with architectural LED lighting
The thick stone walls of Hue’s fortress offered protection to citizens of the ‘Imperial City’ for nearly a century and a half.
Once only accessible to royalty, the Imperial City has been revitalized with the latest lighting technology. The new illumination of the monument is not only to preserve and honor the historical value of the monument but also to create a special attraction at night, attracting many tourists and locals alike.
Vivid, fiery and dynamic
Bright pinks, deep purples and vivid greens are used to illuminate the walls and the impressive ‘Flag Tower’ that can be seen for miles along the Perfume River.
The new lighting is able to create spectacular light shows that include simulating the firing of ‘cannons’ set in the walls of the tower. The LED lighting system is anticipated to be up to 75% more energy efficient than conventional lighting systems.
