JEWEL CHANGI AIRPORT

SINGAPORE 2019 Jewel Changi Airport / Safdie Architects / RSP / Benoy / PWP / ICN







Jewel Changi Airport is a mixed-use development containing gardens and attractions, retail and dining, a

hotel and facilities for airport operations. A stunning ever-changing lighting experience within the gigantic

glass-dome with water voltex was created with the overall cocept of 24-hours amphitheater. As time passes,

expressions of light gradually change, to reveal the full 24-hours of pre-set lighting operations using daylight

and artificial lighting. Tunable white lighting was proposed for areas receiving daylight to provide a seamless

lighting colour temperature experience. This erases the impression of being in an enclosed interior space

as the lighting is constantly changing to blend with daylight color.

Transnational Lighting Detectives Forum 2019 in Shenzhen

世 界 照 明 探 偵 団 フォーラム 2019 in 深 圳

May.17-19





The 15th Annual Transnational Lighting Detectives

Forum was held over three days from May

17th-19th, 2019 in the rapidly developing city of

Shenzhen, China. The theme was “The Shenzhen

Nightscape in 2030.”

Day1

Orientation






A total of 90 participants, mostly students, met together for an

orientation on city walk methodology and the lighting plan of

Shenzhen. Participants were broken up into six teams and

after introductions, team members discussed characteristic of

their assigned area and what they might expect on the walk.


Night Walk




Each team gathered together and went on a night walk in one of six

distinctive areas chosen around the city of Shenzhen.

Day2

Group Discussion






The next day, team members gathered to look over

pictures taken from the previous night`s walk and to

discuss heroes and villains of light in their assigned area.

Reasons for each hero and villain were also discussed

and narrowed down to keywords as work progressed.

Presentation &

Panel Discussion

Day3








After three days of workshops, the final presentations were

held at Harbin Institute of Technology. Each team gave a 15

minute presentation about their assigned area, describing the

existing lighting environment and proposals for the Shenzhen

lightscape of 2030. The panel discussion included seven

panelists who debated and discussed their expectations and

predictions for the nightscape of this cutting edge city as it

continues to develop.


Night Walk Outside Tokyo


Kyoto

Sep.27




After a four year break in the Kansai Area, we went on a city walk in the old city of Kyoto. Forty-four participants

broke into four groups to survey the nightscape, looking for Kyoto-style lighting in a city swamped by tourists

year round.

Presentation & Dinner


Yanagawa


Boat Tour

May.09









The Lighting Detectives hosted a tour to discuss the

nightscape of Yanagawa, known for its canals.

Including a boat tour and a walking session, these

two events to search for heroes and villains of light

were well attended by local residents.

On the boat tour, participants loaded into two small,

flat-bottomed punts to view the nightscape from the

canal. With flashlights, we illuminated buildings and

bridges darkened by shadows to verify ideal

nightscapes for a more charming boat tour at night.

Various ideas and opinions were discussed.


Nightwalk

Jun.10





On land, we walked along the canal to verify what a

comfortable lighting environment might include to

please both residents and tourists.

@Street of Clans

Mar.08-10




Lighting Detectives participated in Singapore Design Week – Street of Clans @ Bukit Pasoh. Our installation titled Sea the

Light also included a kids lantern-making workshop and the transformation of the back-alley into a sea / lantern theme.


Jewel Changi Airport

Jul.17







We wanted to create an exclusive experience of

Jewel where participants can see the transition of the

architectural lighting in the quiet early morning hours.

So, detectives gathered at 5.30am and enjoyed

walking through Jewel to appreciate architectural

lighting and sunrise through the glass facade.

Golden Mile

Nov.01









On the theme of "iconic buildings", we decided to conduct

an active "re-imagining" session with participants at a

popular development in Singapore. Once called the "golden

gate" of Singapore, it now houses the bustling Thai community.

This session will be followed-up using the sketches created

in next year.


City Night Walk


Megurogawa-river Cherry Blossom Light-up

Mar.25





Megurogawa-river is a popular cherry blossom viewing spot in Tokyo. We

surveyed the area, illuminated at night, to see if the illumination increased the

appeal of the cherry blossoms and is a good addition to the custom of cherry

blossom viewing. We also observed the area for signs of light pollution or other

dangerous factors.


Bus Tour

Jul.26




Without fail, bus tour has always been a popular event. The double-decker,

open-air bus took us on a tour past the Tokyo Tower, Rainbow Bridge, Odaiba,

and other famous places in the Tokyo nightscape.


Ikebukuro

Nov.15





Freed from the dangers of becoming a neighborhood in demise, Ikebukuro

continues to redevelop, focusing on becoming a center of cultural dissemination.

We surveyed park lighting in several areas central to the redevelopment,

comparing them to Shinjuku and Shibuya.


Regular Round Table Discussion

Apr.17 & Nov.29




At the salons each group presents on opinions exchanged

during the city walks. Accompanying surveys and materials

based on the city walk theme are also shared.


Lighting Detectives Survey

Chongqing Jul.4-5






Amongst new urban development, the city of

Chongqing is dealing with how important historical,

cultural, and lifestyle elements, continuing from the

age of the Song Dynasty, should coexist, change or

be improved. We surveyed the city to see how the

lighting has evolved, and the effects on residential

activity and urban planning.

Sydney Sep.19-21







In a joint research effort, staff from the Tokyo and

Singapore offices traveled to Sydney to survey the

lighting masterplan being aggressively enforced and

implemented across the city. We consciously

compared changes in the nightscape from previous

surveys in 1998 and 2003 and focused our attention

on the rich waterfront of the city.


Saitama New Urban Center Apr.11







The Saitama New Urban Center, developed and finished in

2000, is a concentrated, multi-functional city center. It is

composed of large shopping complexes, a multipurpose arena,

government office buildings, and medical services, all centered

around the JR Saitama New Urban Center Station. Despite it

being a planned urban area, we could still survey it from the

lighting standpoint to observe differences.

Tsukishima Nov.18






Tsukuda is an artificial island and field developed during the

Edo Era for fishermen. During the Meiji Era the land of

Tsukishima was reclaimed and is now an area with many small

alleyways and several old row houses. As development in and

around Tokyo Bay continues, the area is now a mix of old

streetscape and tall high-rises. We visited the area to survey

the lighting environment.


Children Workshop



Sep.21





Nerima Shakujiikoen Furusato Museum

One of the largest ever, 53 children gathered together to craft

lanterns inspired by vegetables harvested in Nerima, the city in

Tokyo known for Urban Agriculture. It was adorable to see

children get excited when their lanterns got lit. We also held a

“Lecture on Fire and Light” around an “Irori”, a Japanese hearth

in an old traditional Japanese style house.
