Mid Autumn Festival 2019 at Gardens by the Bay Highlights
Lanterns at Gardens by the Bay
Admire the Giant Revolving Lantern (巨型走马灯), measuring 30 metres in diameter and wrapped around a Supertree. This super-sized lantern set is a reimagining of the traditional “Zou Ma Deng” (走马灯), which rotates because of the heat of the candle within and casts shadowed designs of a horse trotting on its panels. This lantern allows visitors to walk through it and view the story of Chang E and Hou Yi.
Gardens by the Bay’s Dragonfly Lake will also be illuminated with two floating lantern sets – Water Colours (山明水秀), a Chinese landscape painting of mountains and a waterfall brought to three-dimensional life, and Martial Arts (武山徒步) where characters practise their moves amidst nature. They are spread over 120 metres on water, forming the longest lantern installation at the Gardens to date.
The 30 sqm cantilevered state-of-the-art 3D-printed steel structure is a reinterpretation of the traditional lantern. It offers unprecedented perspectives through the day with its play on colours, shades and reflections.
