Light(s) at Wuhan station
Studies integrating indirect light sources and sources of light reflected by the roof have shown that some light fittings, specially manufactured for the operation, need to be installed in pairs at a height of 4.50 m and a spacing of 18 meters, so as to obtain an average illumination of the platforms equal to 80 lux. The lighting project is exceptional in its size, its interest and its design complexity, and it is also particularly luxurious in terms of the power used. "With some areas illuminated to more than 200 lux in the car parks, as requested by the Wuhan owner, we are globally well above currently accepted European values", says Michel Garcia, engineer at CSTB. An outstanding cultural feature, even a genuinely local landmark, although not altogether consistent with French energy concerns.
