Dragon Bridge in Da Nang, Vietnam

Being opened to traffic on March 29th, 2013, the Dragon Bridge, which was designed by the US-based Ammann & Whitney Consulting Engineers with Louis Berger Group, is the second bridge run across the Hàn River. The bridge is shaped as an eastern dragon and illuminated by Philips luminaires so it looks like a true dragon surfing on the water.


The Project

At 666 meters long and 37.5 meters wide, the newly opened Dragon Bridge connects Nguyen Van Linh with the Son Tra-Dien Ngoc highway.

As a strong advocate for the use of sustainable energy, the city government of Da Nang was looking for a lighting solution that is energy efficient and would help turn the unique steel bridge into a new icon of Da Nang city.


The Solution

To highlight the 568 meters long dragon, with an 18 meters wide head and a 19.73 meters wide tail, about 2,500 Philips LED light points were used, including LED road lighting solutions. The Philips lighting solution lit the dragon in different colors, and can be controlled and changed to celebrate different festivals and holidays.

The intelligent LED lighting solution painted the iconic dragon with a myriad of colors that can change in 5 different colors, customizable for any occasion, festival or holiday. The eye-catching design of this lighting solution clearly positions the Dragon Bridge as a gateway for Vietnam and the rest of the world to the city of Da Nang. The Philips LED lighting solution brought to life the design of the dragon that seems to leap out of the Han River through a stunning display of colors, with lighting that is both environmentally sustainable and energy efficient.

“This unique and beautifully lit bridge is set to become Da Nang’s new landmark, an ever changing functional artwork that puts Vietnam on the world map of lighting design,” said Dr. Tran Van Thanh, Lighting Designer from ASA Studios.
