The Silk Road Conference Center is an elegant and square-structured building. Thus, its lighting design adopts a rational, concise and detail-oriented approach based on the concept of "the floating moonlight box". During the day, all lighting fixtures are invisible, hidden within the building structure. At night, they together light up the crescent-moon shaped eaves evenly. For visitors nearby, soft and comfortable lighting that connects the interior and the exterior space forms an open and welcoming entrance. From afar, the illuminated white crescent-moons become city's landmark nightscape.
