Taiwanese architect Joshua Jih Pan, who led the design of Delta Electronics’s
Architizer A+Award-winning lantern “Ring of Celestial Bliss,” is scheduled to attend the awards ceremony in New York City Thursday.
Pan’s architectural and planning firm, JJ Pan and Partners, designed the environmentally friendly lantern for the 2013 Taiwan Lantern Festival that took place in Hsinchu.
The 70-meter-wide circular lantern consisted of a recyclable steel structure and bamboo poles. It showcased moving images produced by LED lighting and projection technology.
In April, the giant lantern won both the jury award and the popular choice award in the category of Commercial Pop-ups & Temporary category at the international architecture awards. [FULL STORY]
