It is designed in the shape of two shells – one at 90 meters high and one at 60 meters high. They imply the scallop gives birth to a pearl while the sea gives birth to a scallop, which leads to the name Zhuhai – “Pearl and Sea” in Chinese. To deliver an unforgettable dynamic LED experience to the citizens and tourists of Zhuhai, over 1,014 pieces of Traxon Dot-XL 9 RGB in a total of 51,000 pixels are installed behind the double-sided perforated aluminum façade for video playback and different lighting themes.

Due to its fan-shaped design, customized pitch in 600mm and 800mm are mounted along the shell. The fixtures are paired with 9 pieces of e:cue Butler PRO and 1 piece of e:cue LCE2-fx to allow programming and replay of images and animations, incorporating holiday theme graphics for specific seasoned celebrations.
