as the “Venice of the East.” The lighting design takes cues from Chinese garden design philosophy,
incorporating the idea of “concealment and surprise.” Unique elements of Suzhou are also incorporated
into the interior design concept of “Levitating Garden.” The lighting design emphasizes the idea that walls,
ceiling, furniture and everything else seems to be floating.

This new tallest building, 530-meter-tall, in the city, is located in Guangzhou which has eternal history and
dignity. Elegantly lit with gentle gradation of light, accompanied by the iconic sparkling light set back to the
top of the tower, it is our intention to enhance the three-dimensional quality of the architectural design. This
would help to achieve a sophisticated impression in the surrounding nightscape. Indirect linear lighting on
the terracotta fins bring out the rich and unique texture, highlighting this symbolic art and its craftsmanship
that is famed in Guangzhou.

Akiyama Nursery Room
TOKYO 2018 Medical Corporation Senjitsukai / Ishijima
This facility functions as a regular daycare, but with
additional areas for sick child care, nursing support for
children with SMID, and parenting support services.
We felt that it was very important to create a soft
lighting environment and comfortable atmosphere for
this daycare, which emphasizes the importance of “eat,
sleep, and play”, and is used by a wide variety of
children and parents.
モニカ 本 駒 込 園
Monica Honkomagome Nursery
TOKYO 2018 Monica / Ishijima Architects
A pre-existing, 3-story building was remodeled into a
nursery school. The stairway leading to the second
floor classrooms is bright and fun with luminous steps.
Cutout letters and shapes can be stuck on for a playful
element. Nursery room lighting is flexible in order to
accommodate any room configurations when the
partitions are moved to create a large one-room space
for multi-age activities.
TOKYO 2018 Kotobuki Corporation / Environment Design
Built on prime real estate in the center of Tokyo, this
six-story high, glass-walled building faces a railway
track displaying a large, steel beam “K”, the first letter
of the company name. At night the K is illuminated
and further highlighted, noticeable even from a
passing train. The lighting environment in the
children’s play area on the 4th and 5th floors is brightly
illuminated, but with dim, shadowy areas, like a secret
hideout, allowing children healthy and lively play.

GUANGZHOU 2018 Onelink Industrial (Guangdong)
Renovation of façade lighting for a mixed use project. Initially opened in 2010, the building is located in the
Tianhe district and contains offices, a shopping mall and service apartments. Seemingly draped in a veil,
LED lighting is installed in the gently curved podium with each point of light delicately controlled. The design
creates an elegant expression of light, like golden fabric clinging to the wind.
TOKYO 2018 BOARDWALK / Puddle / moyadesign
The relocation project for e-ticketing service
company BOARDWALK office. The lighting design
successfully reuses existing lighting equipment to
accommodate various situations with preset lighting
scenes, such as relax mood, party, or presentation

The sales gallery of the integrated development with
residences, built above an MRT station has launched.
The show gallery is to experience the design concept
which encapsulates the Japanese essence of design
from maximizing the functional space, to the details
of seamless flushed flooring; evoking a sense of space
and freedom. Indirect lighting is used to create a moody
atmosphere with functional downlights mounted where
necessary. A luminous ceiling over a large model
mimics natural light from above.

space for guests.
Edition Sanya Sales Villa
SANYA 2018 Sanya Jinghope Real Estate / SCDA / Studio STAY
Three types of private villas, with a choice between
five interior schemes, are located on the property of
the Edition Hotel. Each one is designed within the
guidelines of the Edition brand, yet with different
themes. Minimal indirect lighting creates a calm and
cozy contrast, while warm, localized light generates a
homey atmosphere. The exterior and landscape
lighting creates an adequate natural accent, while at
the same time leaving the nightscape undisturbed, to
fully enjoy the sea, moon, and starry sky.

復 興 プロジェクト
Lighting Design Project for Reviving from Disasters
We have continued our research on the application of
lighting design in each of the phases from when a disaster
hits to the long recovery. Last year, we attended
the Temporary Housing Conference and visited an
evacuation center (paper pertition system designed and
provided by Shigeru Ban Architects and Volantary
Architects’ Network), set up after the Hokkaido Eastern
Iburi Earthquake of 2018, using this knowledge to
brainstorm for ideas on specific things or acts that can
be produced in a time of need.

Transnational Lighting Detectives Forum 2018 in Santiago
The 14th Annual Transnational Lighting Detectives Forum was
a 2-day event held on October 18th and 19th in Santiago, Chile.
As the first forum to be held in South America, the event was
well attended by the general public, with professional lighting
designers and architects, instead of the usual student population,
making up the central body. The forum kicked off with a relaystyle
talk session by the core members, focusing on the forum
theme, “Heroes and Villains of Light in your City,” at the Chile
National Museum of Fine Arts. The forum wrapped up with
proposals to improve the lighting environment of Santiago at the
University of Chile.
Core members kicked off with a talk session focused on the
forum theme, “Heroes and Villains of Light in your City,”
reporting on the state of New York City, Taipei, Hamburg,
Stockholm, Belgrade, Singapore, and Bangkok. Each
presenter had only seven minutes to describe the challenges
and successes facing each city.
Participants were divided into groups for the night walk and
assigned to five unique areas of Santiago to look for heroes
and villains of light. Each group experienced difficulty finding
heroes of light.
Workshop & Presentation
Each group gave a presentation on the heroes
and villains of light discovered during the night
walk and proposals to improve their assigned
lighting environment. In-depth discussions
between professional lighting designers and
very knowledgeable students developed into
CG renderings and sessional drawings which
transformed into well-thought out slideshow
Night Walk in Singapore
We started city night walk events in Singapore in 2018. Starting from the iconic night scapes in Marina Bay,
followed by Geylang Serai during Hari Raya Puasa, a Muslim festival, and Botanic gardens with landscape design
professionals, and lastly, again in Marina bay with lighting designers from all over the world in conjunction with
Marina Bay during PLDC
夏 休 みワークショップ Jul. 26
24 energetic children and parents attended a heroes and villains
of light workshop along Omotesando and Cat Street in Tokyo. In
order for the children to take an interest in lighting design, we
went out into the city to observe light and find heroes and villains
of light. After finding what might be a hero or villain, the children
thought about the reasons why.

Lantern Making Workshop in Omishima, Ehime
The Lighting Detectives were invited by architect Toyo Ito’s
architectural school to hold a joint effort children’s workshop to
create building-shaped lantern in the natural environment of

@ Edo-Tokyo Open-Air Architectural Museum
Except for a few buildings, all of the museum lights were turned
off to really experience the dark, an irori, a traditional Japanese
sunken cooking fire, and light up. The children experienced how
the Japanese used to spend dark nights long ago and the
importance of just a small flicker of light.

海 外 調 査 Overseas
Baku, Azerbaijan & Doha, Qatar Feb. 12-17
The Lighting Detectives traveled to the capital cities of big oil producing countries, Doha, Qatar and Baku, Azerbaijan, both
economically developed with oil money. Many may not be familiar with these two countries, but we surveyed the cityscape
to discover the lighting environment in these two cities with a large affluent population and unique culture and economics.
Zurich, Bern & Basel, Switzerland Apr. 12-17
We travelled to three cities, Zurich, Bern, and Basel, in Switzerland, a nation well-known for good design. During our survey,
springtime seemed to call to the young and old, men and women, who were randomly relaxing in plazas, along waterfronts,
and on side streets in the dwindling twilight and early evening.
Marrakish, Casablanca, etc.., Morocco Sep. 30-Oct. 08
Morocco is situated on the African continent, however neighbouring countries, Spain and France, seem to have had a large
influence over the formation of the country’s distinctive culture. We experienced first-hand four elements, climate, culture,
life-style, and scenery, which formed the basis for our lighting survey, all seeming to bask in the Mediterranean Sea
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil & Santiago, Chile Oct. 13-23
We surveyed the lighting environment of the international harbour city of Rio de Janeiro, a city where leisure and poverty
live next door. Next, we surveyed the lighting environment of Santiago, the largest city in Chile, a country surrounded by
its grandeur nature. The city is also endowed with bountiful natural light.
Colombo, Kandy & Galle, Sri Lanka Oct. 23-28
In Sri Lanka we travelled to three unique cities, Colombo, awakened in recent years with much development, and World
Heritage Sites, Kandy and Galle. We surveyed the relationship between light and lifestyle in this Buddhist country.

札 幌 & 函 館
Sapporo & Hakodate Apr. 16-19
Appealing to tourists, Hakodate was one of the first cities to build up and keep its image as a city with an incredible night
view. Sapporo has also followed suit with an increasingly, highly acclaimed nightscape. We surveyed these two cities in
Hokkaido just as the snow was starting to melt off the northern landscape.
照 明 探 偵 団 総 会 & 入 門 講 座
General Assembly & Orientation
The general assembly is an opportunity for all Lighting
Detective members to gather together to share in good
food and drinks while listening to presentations outlining
activities for the upcoming year, highlights in Lighting
Detective history, and a review of city walk know-how.
Afterwards, we enjoyed several member introductions
leading to ecstatic open conversation.
Night Watching Tour
阿 智 村
Achi Village Jul. 21-22
How many stars are visible in the night sky of a place chosen as the most beautiful starry sky in Japan? The
Lighting Detectives traveled to Achi Village, Nagano Prefecture to experience firsthand the most beautiful starry
sky in Japan. For one night, 2000 visitors stretch-out on the grassy slopes of a local ski area to observe the starry
sky. Unfortunately, the night the Lighting Detectives reserved was a full moon so it wasn’t quite as expected. But
with the use of laser pointer we found constellations and heard simple explanations of each. Time seemed to
disappear as we star gazed and were immersed in the evening. The next day we enjoyed walks through the
village in this refreshingly natural and mountainous environment.

of hints to this stylish neighbourhood.
Shinagawa Sep. 25
The theme for this city walk was to study Shinagawa
Station and the surrounding area now, and fantasize
about its future. Shinagawa has experienced change
after change and we divided into three teams to survey
three different areas, Takanawa, Konan, and Kita

Shibuyagawa Nov. 16
This city walk took us to the recently redeveloped area of
Shibuya River, Shibuya Stream, and Shibuya Bridge.
From three different points of view, pedestrian, creative
worker life-style, and urban environment, we searched
from heroes and villains of light.
Apr. 16, Oct. 02, Nov. 29
After a city walk, members gather once again a few weeks later for a review. These gatherings develop into deeper
discussions, having had time to process, organize, and rethink ideas and opinions from after the walk.
