New lighting for Ho Chi Minh City Museum of Fine Arts
Ho Chi Minh City, the hub of southern Vietnam, inaugurated the new lighting of its Museum of Fine Arts in October 2018. The lighting scheme was developed and implemented by experts from the City of Lyon within the framework of a long-standing bilateral cooperation between the two cities.
“We wanted to use light to reveal the architecture of the building. It was also important for us to properly integrate the projectors so that they would be invisible by day and to ensure that no glare disturbed passers-by,” says Thierry Marsick, Director, Urban Lighting Department at the City of Lyon.
