HCM CITY (Biz Hub) — ASA Lighting Design Studios has been chosen as the lighting designer for Cau Rong, or the Dragon Bridge, Da Nang's new landmark.

The lighting scheme has to visualise a respectful, majestic, but friendly Dragon that would bring prosperity to one of the fastest growing cities in Viet Nam, said Tran Van Thanh, design director of ASA Studios.

It is designed to be an open system that allows endless changes in the lighting scenario to fit any script or event, he added.

The default scene would be golden illumination, slowly changing to four other carefully picked colours -- silver, green, light blue, and blue.

The system should be linked and synchronised easily with other entertainment systems.

"The bridge can be an art performance stage with lighting, music, fireworks; and the dragon can shoot fire and water," Thanh said.

The Dragon Bridge linking downtown Da Nag with Son Tra-Dien Ngoc area, a popular tourist area, will be a new symbol of the city and attract tourists at weekends to enjoy shows.

The 666-metre steel bridge, whose arches made up the body of the dragon, was unveiled in March.

It was designed by US-based Louis Berger Group and cost VND1.7 trillion (US$80.9 million) to build.. —  VNS
