After the 2011 earthquake disaster many cities were

expected to conserve electricity by turning off or

reducing lights. This included train stations, but we

started with a complete survey of the lighting

environment to rethink suitable station lighting.

Accordingly, we proposed a lighting environment with

moderate contrast and time-oriented lighting operations.

Travelling Exhibition

“Nightscape 2050

-A Dialogue between Cities-Light-People in the Future”









From August 2015 – June 2016, the Travelling Exhibition of Light was hosted graciously in four cosmopolitan cities,

Berlin, Singapore, Hong Kong and Tokyo. This gave us the remarkable opportunity to animate thought and spark

off discussions with regards to the future interrelationship between cities, light and people, in the future. With

extensive coverage from the various media platforms and around 35,000 visitors to the exhibition, we greatly

appreciate the exposure and numerous reviews given. We send thanks to everyone, near and far, for realizing

our hopes of creating a wonderfully light and casual meeting of people through this travelling exhibition.

Tokyo

Temporary Contemporary

14th May - 10th June 2016

(4weeks)








The culmination of the travelling exhibition was in Tokyo.

After wrapping up activities in all four cities, we reflected

on our initial purpose and outcome of the exhibition. Along

with the original travelling exhibition contents, the Tokyo

venue also displayed items specific to Tokyo in a tour of

seven gallery rooms, each with different themes. Based

on visions of Tokyo’s future, LPA also displayed themebased

proposals and held talk events.

Tokyo Nightscape 2050






LPA presented lighting proposals concerning the future of Tokyo exploring five different themes: “Tokyo”,

“Sumidagawa River”, the “Underground”, “Convenience Stores” and “Disasters”. Each proposal was presented

weekly by LPA staff and then critiqued by a special guest during the talks held. This provided a unique opportunity

for frank discussion of the Tokyo nightscape.

Tokyo


May. 13









With concerning Tokyo’s individual neighborhoods that

present so diverse sceneries with refined sense of chaos, we

proposed an urban lighting rules and manners “Kaleidoscope

of light” for future Tokyo. Our special guest, Mr. Taro Igarashi,

suggested the need for a more daring and dramatic approach,

while special guest Mr. Kenya Hara hoped to see a nightscape

with more pianissimo light, soft and faint like a match flame.


Sumidagawa River


Jun. 9









How do we revive the banks of the Sumidagawa River, once a

thriving and vibrant center of everyday life during the Edo Period?

We focused our presentation on four elements representative of the

Sumidagawa River and created conceptual drawings using present

day images. Our special guest Mr. Hidenobu Jinnai appealed to

the reality of the proposal content, stating that unlike the river

embankments planned in European cities, like Paris or London, a

softer approach should betaken to protect the banks of the

Sumidagawa River.

Underground


May. 20









We want the underground in the year 2050 to be a place to shock

the senses! From this image we proposed new underground

spaces based on four different concepts: connect with the city, flow

of time, breathing nature, and enjoying darkness. During the talk

session we discussed how in the past detailed cave drawing were

created in dark caves. From there, the talk enthusiastically pounded

the necessity for an absence of light and now is the time to trigger

our innate capacity to enjoy faint light and darkness.


Convenience Store


May. 27









Think about convenience stores as centers for major city functions…

We proposed a lighting plan based on the time of day and city

functions to create regional or local community hubs. We presented

images of lighting changes throughout the day, an alternative to the

traditional convenience store with the same light 24 / 7. Our special

guest, Ms. Tomomi Ishiyama, expecting a futuristic presentation,

was surprised by the cozy feeling of the proposal and realized that

despite the continuous advancement of technology, the basic

concept of light rooted in human beings is unchanged.

Disaster


Jun. 3










“Life-saving light in times of crisis”. In our daily lives, this lighting

system should be energy efficient and maintenance-free but a safe

and reassuring cornerstone in times of power outage. These ideas

were conveyed by a short movie based in Shibuya. Mr. Yoshiharu

Tsukamoto, our special guest, bluntly commented that prescribing

new law or infrastructure presented in the movie can be outdated

approach. However, by expanding the capacity of people to live with

lower amounts of light might be the key to surviving in times of

disaster; the eternal quest as lighting designers.


LPA 震 災 復 興 照 明 プロジェクト

Lighting Design Project for reviving from Earthquake Disaster










It has been 5 years since the start of the project and last year marked a new turn in our project activities. We

underwent hearing surveys concerning the lighting environment and other lighting issues around the time of the

earthquake by those effected in the disaster-stricken area of Kesennuma, Miyagi. Learning and knowing about the

lighting conditions during times of disaster and past-disaster are one way to attain hints in preparing for a disaster,

physically and mentally. When the results of our study are accumulated we plan to make the knowledge public.

With the help of local residents, the Akari Cafe reopened in the Koizumi area of Kesennuma. (The first visit was in

July 2012.) The Akari Cafe is just one part of the community revival process and an opportunity to witness the

beginnings of a community-wheeled project. In conjunction with the Kesennuma-Yokocho, temporary food stall

vendors setup to re-establish local economic activity, the Akari Cafe open in 2015 with a special event, in 2016 we

went back for a Christmas finale. The children made ornaments to decorate the previously used Yokocho lantern

wall and in the plaza nightscapes from all over the world were projected onto a screen.

@Fullerton Heritage

Mar.05-27










Lighting Detectives organized a workshop as a part of iLIGHT

Marina Bay 2016. The theme of this year was In Praise of Shadows.

This also coincides with our lighting design philosophy - being

sensitive and appreciating shadows. We made the gigantic lantern

comprised of little module artworks by participants and displayed

it as part of the event. Though this journey itself took an immense

amount of effort, we hoped that everyone could learn to appreciate

light and shadow through the workshop.

This was the first Light Up Ninja in Hong Kong, held in conjunction with the Hong Kong Architecture Society

sponsored architecture and urban gallery event, “Bi-city Biennale of Urbanism \ Architecture 'Visions 2050:

Lifestyle and the Smart City'”. The workshop took place in a warm afternoon in Kowloon Park with about 150

guests, including preregistered participants, college students, and passing tourists. The theme was

“Create Future City by Lantern!” and the participants used various materials to craft lanterns expressing their

dreams and images of the future. The lanterns were set between the trees creating a heartwarming futuristic

nightscape as they grew dark.

Paris Oct. 16-19






It has been 12 years since the Lighting Detectives last surveyed Paris,

France. Boasting the highest number of foreign tourists annually, the

residents of this enchanting city have a sense of beauty which is

expressed in the lighting of their cityscape. We surveyed the city to

further understand how the charm of their historical buildings is

preserved in the face of rapid technological advancements in lighting.

London Oct. 19-22






With the shock of Brexit still fresh in the minds of people, we visited this

tumultuous country. The Lighting Detectives last surveyed London 14

years ago. With a medley of new and old buildings lined shoulder to

shoulder, unending developments along the Thames River and the

legacy of the London Olympics, we explored the city to find what new

lighting were colouring the London nightscape.

国 内 調 査 Japan


大 阪

Osaka Oct. 26-28







The largest city of Western Japan, impossible to encapsulate in one

word, is a sprawl of neighbourhoods and diverse lighting environments.

Nanba and Shintenchi are modest; Osaka Bay is surrounded by a band

of factories; Nakanoshima has a waterfront and is filled with famous

modern buildings; Osaka Station is the transportation hub of the city.

We surveyed this multi-faceted town from various angles to rediscover

the City of Osaka.


東 京 調 査 Tokyo


東 京 ドームシティ+ 周 辺 環 境

Tokyo Dome City + Ambient environment Sep. 26






Tokyo Dome City embraces various entertainment facilities such as

amusement park and shopping mall. How do these unique lighting

environments impact neighboring residential areas? We explored the

area to discover how contrasting light for entertainment and light for

daily life co-habituate is this pocket of Tokyo.

Organizer : Nagasaki City Co-organizer : Lighting Detectives

Nov.24







The Lighting Detectives were invited by the Nagasaki City to hold a city walk in

November 2016, the first of three scheduled walks. The first walk centered around

the famous tourist neighborhood of the World Heritage Site, Glover Residence, and

the Oura Cathedral Church, registered as a National Treasure. Participants included

the Nagasaki Camber of commerce Junior Chamber, Urban Development Committee,

and many Nagasaki locals for an opportunity to discuss the state of the night environment.

18 : 00 オリエンテーション Orientation



At the orientation we introduced the Lighting Detectives and its main activities and

also explained the purpose, methodology, and route of the night walk.

18 : 4520 : 00 街 歩 き Night Walk





Participants divided into four groups and walked 1.6km. This area of Nagasaki is renowned

for its up and down, hilly terrain with many old western style buildings and park overlooking

the city. Participants looked for heroes and villains of light along their journey.

20 : 0021 : 00 懇 親 会 Sum Up










The post-walk discussion was held in a retro, western-style, historical building turned

café, Higashiyamate House 13. At the party, each group gathered to discuss, decided,

and presented three heroes and villains of light. Various opinions about the night

walk were brought up, some brick walls along the slopes could be illuminated to create

vertical luminance; pole lights are too bright near city viewpoints; there are bright

pole lights, but I can’t see my own feet!; some of the unique architecture should be

illuminated; or the orangish sodium vapor lamps really accent the old streetscape.

We are looking forward to two more walks in different areas of the city and dynamic

post-walk discussion.


街 歩 き

City Night Walk


馬 車 道 & 伊 勢 佐 木 町

Bashamichi & Isezakicho Mar. 18






This city walk took members along two courses, east and west of

the JR train tracks to experience the contrast in lighting

environments between Bashamichi and Isezakicho. The walk in

Bashamichi was a time turn back to the era of the opening of the

Yokohama Port with preserved retro streetscape leading to the

more modern Isezaki Mall.

渋 谷

Shibuya Aug. 05






Shibuya is made up of a myriad of features. This August night

walk started at JR Shibuya Station with a north-west route angled

out from the Yamanote Line and Inokashira Line. We divided into

four groups, Tokyu Cultural Area, Parco Cultural Area, Center

Street, and the red-light district, to discover the difference in

nightscapes within Shibuya.

羽 田 空 港

Haneda Airport Oct. 21







This night walk is not the usual street setting, but the huge

transportation hub, Haneda International Airport. We divided into

four teams to survey Terminal #1 , #2 and the International

Terminal, renovated in 2014. We discovered old and new airport

lighting, but all members raved about the observation deck lighting

in all terminals.
