Shanghai Bund

Shanghai, China

Client: Huangpu District Lighting & Landscape Management Authority, City of Shanghai
Association: In Association with Uno Lai Lighting Design
Completion: 2018

In April 2018 we received the assignment to reimagine the lighting for 27 landmarked buildings on the Shanghai waterfront. Carefully revealed classical facades coexist as a series of jewel boxes within the larger fabric of the historic waterfront. We imagined a future of white light constrained to a CCT range from 1800K to 3000K, sympathetic to the stately historic facades and in marked contrast to the aggressive color changing lighting shows of the Pudong and other cities in China and around the world. The first phase of the project was inaugurated by China’s President Xi on November 5, 2018.
FMS led a large team of designers in the development of the lighting design concept. FMS, in association with Uno Lai Lighting Design, provided complete design services for Shanghai Pudong Development Bank and Customs House.
