The objectives of the new lighting design were to:
• create a modern history & culture memorial and tour, and a place for citizens and visitors to enjoy
• improve the livability of this old town of refugees and their descendants through light and art painting projects
• improve security and night-time safety through smart lighting, and to develop the town’s economy.
The new lighting has delivered multiple benefits. Landscape and street lighting have brought a modern historical space to life, and contemporary buildings and streets are now lit for a premium night-time tour of the ‘provisional capital of the Korean War’, thereby boosting tourism revenues.
