As a Lighting designer am very interested to know more about the lighting design part of  the project and the way the designers placed lights to get these brilliant effects .  As far as i know , in most of the good lighting designers try to hide the light fixtures to get best result . I always look for the fixture to understand the techniques and the way to hide light fixture brilliantly.

Lighting design tips 

I will share  some of my designing tips  to hide light source for best result especially situations like –  sometimes we like the effect of lights in particular position and there is no provision to install lamp on particular area ,so you could use below ideas .  

  • Choose the right body color for the fixture to match with the structure or object  so viewers will not notice the light fixture easily.   
  • Use glare control accessories 
  • If cant place the fixture on the structure , then use a narrow beam angle light fixture and place the light far away from object that no one will notice the source of light easily  
  • Create a profile for fixture that matched with color and finish of the structure and place fixture inside that profile and mount it on the structure . So the source of light will be hidden from the viewing angle .

The full length of the canal has five pedestrian bridges, three of which connect either side of the canal with unique aesthetic specifications. The three bridges rise 8.5 metres above the water. The first and second bridges are located between Shaikh Zayed Road and Al Wasl Roads, and the third bridge is located in the area between Al Wasl and Jumeirah Roads.

The first pedestrian bridge extends 120 metres in length and six metres in width, and is a metal bridge suspended by metal cables lifting the bridge floor.The second bridge measures 205×6.5 metres and the floor of the bridge is constructed in an S-Curve shape. The pedestrian bridge is suspended by an oval arch rising 50 metres and is supported by concrete pillars on both sides of the canal with hanging steel cables to lift the bridge floor.

The third bridge measures 140×3.5 metres in the form of a twisted steel bracket built on steel columns on both sides of the canal.All bridges are fitted with electric elevators and escalators on both sides. However, the second bridge has a concrete slope to serve cyclists.The design and construction of the bridges boast of iconic engineering design. For example, the canal bridge on the Sheikh Zayed Road is fitted with waterfall and creative lighting.
