Lighting design: ENTHUS and Busan design center
Busan, South Korea's southernmost city, served as the country’s ‘provisional capital’ in the Korean War. 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.
