A new temple gate built at the temple ground entrance.
Located in a residential neighborhood, the illumination
needed to be friendly and inviting, but also stately with
a sense of awe. The surrounding stucco wall is also
dimly lit to add a subtle glow to the front approach.
SINGAPORE 2015 National Gallery Singapore / FARM
The Art Connector is a unique public circulation space
that leads people to the newly opened National Gallery
Singapore. Along a busy public trafficable area, this
space is designed like a geological system that can be
enjoyed by all in an open environment. The lighting
scheme is to highlight the artworks on display, with
emphasis on reflections, changing contrasts and
varying lighting methods from large indirectly lit
surfaces to tiny microscopic stardust lights and create
a rich dynamic experience.

What is appropriate light to convey Japanese culture
and technology? There is a sense of subtleness and
profoundness in Japan that we wanted to express in
the lighting design. The façade is illuminated from
inside the timber latticework, with its silhouette visible
from outside. Depending on the angle, the lighting
changes as it comes in and out of the shadows.
We explored several ideas to light the elaborate
latticework, and finally used narrow beam spotlights.

Lighting Design Project for reviving from Earthquake Disaster
Now in the fourth year of this project, we teamed-up with Kesennuma-Yokocho, a temporary food stall vendor area
setup to reestablish local economic activity. Because of regrading construction, the food stalls will be closing in
October 2016. To rally the area for their last year of business, Akari café was expanded into Akari party. Luminous
Kotatsu, Japanese-style, heated tables covered with a blanket, were specially-made for this winter event. Also, at
the workshop, children created colorful lantern covers to be used along with the permanent lighting and a drawing
board for children was set up. In spite of rain on the day of the event, more than 40 children attended the festive
workshop, more than past events! Lighting devices made by the children will be on display during the last year of
business at the food stalls.

Travelling exhibition on lighting is still ongoing...
2015 is a special year for LPA. To commemorate LPA’s 25th anniversary this year, we organized an exhibition
“Nightscape 2050 – a Dialogue between CitiesLightPeople in the Future”. It started in Berlin in last August,
moved to Singapore in October , and then to Hong Kong this January. Finally it will travel to Tokyo in May. The
exhibition is not just about lighting design, it is an experience composed of numerous programs such as a lighting
experiential booth, showcase of world nightscapes, interview with masters and innovators, workshops with children
and symposiums. The exhibition conducted in the three cities so far received positive feedback from the visitors
as well as from the media. Each city has its own local context of light and this helped to create a platform for
discussing Nightscape of the City in the year 2050. Our final destination, the exhibition in Tokyo will be held at
“Temporary Contemporary” gallery in Tsukishima, Chuo-ku in May. We look forward to seeing you there!
New monograph “LPA 1990-2015 Tide of Architectural Lighting Design” published
Our new monograph “LPA 1990-2015 Tide of Architectural Lighting Design” was published in English and Japanese
from Rikuyosha publishing in June 2015. The book looks into LPA’s selected 101 projects within the last 25 years.
It is divided into 5 phases. Architectural/lighting design has matured rapidly with the various social phenomena
and development of architectural/lighting technologies. This 400 page book looks forward to our future with light
by reminiscing the starting point of architectural lighting design. You can see how lighting design has evolved by
browsing through the 8 page-long architectural lighting design chronology attached at the end of the book.
Numerous lighting design award
“Otemachi Tower”, “Aman Tokyo”, “Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall” and “d’Leedon” projects received awards
from the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA). And Otemachi Tower project also received
Illuminating Engineering Institute of Japan, Award of Excellence. Illuminating Engineering Institute of Japan
lighting design award programs have revised their award standards and criteria two years ago, and we look
forward to more active lighting design criticism.
TNT forum goes around the world
TNT (Transnational Tanteidan -Lighting Detectives) forum was held in Madrid, Spain in 2014 , and was organized
again on a grand scale in Mexico city in November 2015. 2015 was dedicated as the year of light by UNESCO
and the four day workshop was fully supported by the the Universidad National Autonoma de Mexico, Museo de
la Luz and Palacio de Medecine. We have not yet determined the venue for the 2016 forum, we are looking at
several places in Asia.
Working towards next 25 years
The role and responsibility of the lighting designer surely evolves as time goes by. We at LPA as a professional
group of lighting designers will always strive to innovate lighting design through our years of experience and
teamwork. Our new journey for the next 25 years has begun.

Transnational Lighting Detectives Forum 世 界 照 明 探 偵 団 フォーラム
@Museo de la Luz / Palacio de Medicina
The world’s most populous city, Mexico City. A city with a long history and lots of charm, this was the venue for the
12th annual Transnational Lighting Detectives Forum, the largest forum in the books yet. Architecture students from
the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM) were the center of the 3-day forum focusing on SENSING
LIGHT - FEELING LIGHT. The Mexico City nightscape comes with many problems and we worked with local
students to examine how local residents asses the nightscape and addressed ideas for improvements or upgrades.
Seven Lighting Detective members shared their unique
approaches about light and lighting at this dialog event.
Members of the audience included not only forum participants,
but also government officials and local media.
The orientation was held at the Museo de la Luz, a building
over 400 years old. The workshop started by dividing into
6 teams of 10 participants and 2 TNT members.
The next day, we broke into teams again to discuss the
previous night’s walk. There seemed to be more time
at this workshop than previous years, so each group
discussed in depth the images taken on the walk. Several
shots were debated as heroes and also villains of light.
Finally, the groups came up with decisive keywords to
help in classifying and drawing conclusions.
The night walk focused on six distinct areas in Mexico
City. 1. Plaza Santo Domingo, an area bustling with
people during the day. 2. Temple Mayor Area, an
area of Aztec ruins. 3. Madero Zocalo, a historical
area popular with tourists. 4. Alameda Park, the
oldest park in Mexico City is also a local oasis and
place of relaxation. 5. Revolution, the area near
the Monument to the Revolution. 6. Reforma, the
central business district. These are places people
seem to gather at night, but also have visible
problems with the nightscape.
Each team put together a power point presentation and
3 large panel boards. The 20-minute presentations
including 3 heroes of light, 3 villains of light, problematic
points in the nightscape, and betterment proposals.

東 京 調 査 Tokyo
Ginza Jun. 16
In past surveys of Tokyo, no cases have focused on brightness.
From the viewpoint of “luminance”, we selected Ginza to survey
because it is a leading downtown area in Tokyo. We surveyed and
recorded luminosity values to compared the brightness of Ginza.
目 黒 川
Meguro River Nov. 04
Meguro riverside is a famous spot in Tokyo for cherry blossom
viewing and shopping at its many stylish stores, in spite of the
surprisingly dim environment. Many people like this riverside street
because the dim environment does not feel like scary darkness.
We surveyed the Meguro riverside nightscape, which is different
from any other glittering neighborhoods in Tokyo, to search for the
secret to its endearing darkness.
国 内 調 査 Japan
Hokuriku Sept. 01-04
The target of the first Hokuriku city survey was to see the difference
between ‘city lights’ and ‘agricultural lights’. In this rural area, we
saw very functional and basic uses of light, such as insect light
traps for farming and sweeping beams from lighthouses. In Kanazawa
City, the city promotes the nightscape as one of its main tourist
resources and we surveyed this specially designed lightscape. The
soft illumination of castle walls and retro Japanese lighting elements
in the Chaya-machi neighborhood emphasize the calm image of this
照 明 探 偵 団 in 大 阪 Lighting Detectives in Osaka
Osaka is a city of water and light. What is the charm of the neighborhood Naniwa?
What are the problems? Ten club members traveled from Tokyo to join Osaka
members in an eastern/western style walk. At the orientation, the Osaka City of
Light Masterplan was explained along with the walk route and points of interest,
after introductions from all the participants.
街 歩 き Night Walk
Participants were divided into two teams: the western Kansai Team and the eastern
Kanto Team. Participants were deliberately divided according to region for this walk
to see if there is a difference in perceptions of light. The walk started with a boat ride
down the Dojima River after sunset. The blue moment was settling over the city as
building lights, bridge and embankment illuminations started to shine. All along the
riverside was a stunning collaboration of light and water. From the Dotonbori
luminous signage to Hozenji Temple neighborhood gas lamps and lanterns to the
retro atmosphere of Shinsekai shopping area; all collective elements of the Osaka
lightscape, but also each neighborhood with its own unique lighting character.
懇 親 会 Sum Up Dinner
At the informal dinner, each team selected and presented 5 heroes and villains of
light. The Kanto team’s No.1 hero was the famous Glico luminous sign, an iconic
sign and symbolic feature of the Naniwa nightscape. The Kansai team selected the
neighborhood of Tobita-shinchi with its uniformed signage and lantern lined streets.
It was hard to tell how much regional differences influenced the selection process,
but both east and west teams agreed that the No.1 villain is the bright new security
street lamps. Unfortunately, LED lamps are becoming standardized and bright
security lighting is found in many Japanese urban areas.
街 歩 き
City Night Walk
歌 舞 伎 町 May 29
Near the Shinjuku Koma Theatre, several buildings have been rebuilt and Central Road and Kabukicho in general
has gotten a facelift during recent years. This city night walk centered on this newly redeveloped area to discover
if or to identify any changes to Kabukicho. Golden Street is still a retro atmosphere reminiscent of the Showa Era,
with most signage in warm-color tones for a comfortable and uniform nightscape. However, the main Neon Street
is bright with light. For better or worse, this is the attraction as well as the charm of Kabukicho. If this is what
draws people to the area and creates the vibrant atmosphere, maybe Kabukicho is a Hero of Light after all!?
研 究 会 サロン
Regular Round Table Discussion
We discussed the Kabukicho city night walk, which was held in a
torrential downpour! We assumed that it would be one villain after
another, but to our surprise, many examples that regularly would have
been classified as villains, were actually debated as heroes. The
debate delve into cultural aspects and the historic background of
Kabukicho for an engaging conversation.
