Aman Tokyo is the newest luxury city hotel in Tokyo for

the Aman Resort brand. The reception atrium features

an expansive view of Tokyo metropolitan area. The

day and evening. Placement of fixtures was also

carefully executed to create a comfortable and

relaxing area to enjoy the views.


大 手 町 タワー

OTEMACHI TOWER


TOKYO 2014 Tokyo Tatemono / KPF / Taisei / SIMPLICITY









Otemachi Tower is a new multi-purpose complex.

Luminous slits in the high-rise body and cove-lighting

along the building crown create a dignified façade.

In the public walking area, lighting softly illuminates a

reconstructed grove of trees and the interior and

exterior lighting is linked for more unique lighting

effects. Every night at 8pm for 30 minutes, simulated

moonlight falls over this urban forest.


VICTORIA THEATRE AND CONCERT HALL

SINGAPORE 2014 Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth / National Art Council Singapore /

Singapore Symphony Orchestra / W Architects







This is an A & A (Addition & Alteration) project for building that has a rich 100 years history in Singapore.

The beauty of the colonial motifs in stucco on the white façade are highlighted carefully by LED lights. LED

luminaires are used for most of lightings for two auditoriums - the theatre hall and concert hall, with a great

deal of importance given to noiseless performance for a perfect acoustic ambience.


大 分 県 立 美 術 館

OITA PREFECTURAL ART MUSEUM


OITA 2015 Oita Prefecture / Shigeru Ban Architects / studio on site







Oita Prefectural Art Museum includes galleries for special exhibitions, the collection of Oita prefecture, and

a 10m high bifold glass door and at night the atrium become a relaxing space for local residents. The simple

wooden lattice façade, inspired by traditional bamboo craft, is softly lit and provides the street ambient light.

It will open on April 24, 2015.


d'leedon

SINGAPORE 2014 Capitaland Residential / Zaha Hadid Architects / RSP Architects, Planners & Engineers






Located in prime land parcel, d’leedon is one of the largest residential developments in recent years. The

lighting scheme is closely aligned to the unique architectural language of the project. This challenging

scheme relies on continuous linear lighting profiles and a minimum number of bollards and pole lights were

used to achieve a seamless architectural expression. Only LED lighting fixtures were used for the entire

public area lighting of the project.


飯 田 橋 グラン・ブルーム / パークコート 千 代 田 富 士 見 ザ タワー

IIDABASHI GRAND BLOOM / PARK COURT CHIYODA FUJIMI THE TOWER



TOKYO 2014 COOPERATIVE FOR URBAN RENEWAL OF IIDABASHI STATION WEST GATE DISTRICT /

NIKKEN SEKKEI, MAEDA CORPORATION / PLACEMEDIA / NOMURA / EMOTIONAL SPACE DESIGN







A new complex facility near Iidabashi Station West Gate. The landscape along Sotobori Park street is lined

with lattice-work light called “Fujimi Lanterns.” By making differences in the height of lanterns, it creates

harmonious light environment with greenery while expressing differences in levels of landscape. In the

office entrance with large glass facade, the feature stonewall is impressively emerged by the light.


THE METROPOLIS

SINGAPORE 2014 HoBee Group / DCA Architects










This office complex is located in the heart of Singapore’s

research and development facility with surrounding

ambient light levels not as bright as one would find in

a Downtown Area. We sought to minimize the quantity

of lighting fixtures, and yet polish the architectural

finishes with light. The client’s love for art pieces within

the complex helped create an ‘Art Gallery’ environment

where the light focused on Art as the center-stage of

the experience and adequate contrast ratios between

spaces could be created.


268 ORCHARD

SINGAPORE 2014 Ngee Ann Property Management /

Raymond Woo Associates Architects / Shimizu










A new commercial building covered by 3 glass boxes

has been introduced in Orchard Road. The lighting

concept was to bring out the “Inner Glow and Sharp

Form" through the glass boxes. The beauty of the

structural cables has highlighted by cool white light

while the rest of the vertical planes are illuminated by

warm white lights. Nodes, where the cable crosses,

were highlighted by narrow beam spotlights to appear

as bright and stunning to the eye.


WALDORF ASTORIA HOTEL

which can be programmed to display the hotel logo.

Inside the hotel has been designed to reflect Beijing’s

history of imperial power. The design approach follows

the concept of Icon Empire which describes the heaven

as round the earth as square. The lighting design

follows this philosophy by highlighting the iconic

elements and the space with light and shadow to

create a harmonious balance of sky and earth.


PARK HYATT BUSAN

BUSAN 2013 Hyundai Development / Studio Daniel Libeskind /

Super Potato











Several high rise structures were built along the

waterfront in Busan, Korea, including the Park Hyatt.

In the entrance, bamboo and glass block artwork

beautifully contrast with an aji stone wall. In the tower,

the lighting environment is reserved, but aims to

feature the materials while also creating the ultimate

view over the city. In the guest rooms, the lighting

design is a careful balance of light and shadow to fully

enjoy the nightscape from the windows.

opened in a new shopping mall that attracts young

crowd. The library emphasizes on books related to

design, lifestyle and applied arts. Lighting scheme

pays attention on the minimum use of downlights while

trying to create a comfortable ambience, as well as

carefully adjusting the balance of contrast between

artificial and natural light for reading spaces. Lighting

is integrated to the bookshelves, ceiling coves and wall

paneling in order to avoid glare and veiling reflections.


ゼニア 銀 座 ビル

ZENIA GINZA Bldg.


TOKYO 2014 GINZA 2T / TAKENAKA / ASAI KEN ARCHITECTURAL RESERCH






This is a new commercial building built along the Ginza Central Avenue. The façade lighting concept is a

the edge of the black frame.


ララシャンス 博 多 の 森

LA LA CHANCE FOREST OF HAKATA


FUKUOKA 2014 IKK









La La Chance is a new wedding complex built in the

Hakata Forest near the Fukuoka Airport. The guest

houses and chapel seem to float upon a large pool of

This exhibition aims to explore a new horizon of light and lighting design. Its contents will be about Light and

Lighting; and start from Berlin, then to Singapore, Hong Kong and finally to Tokyo.

Our definition of Nightscape is “Scenes with People and Light” and not a literal evening urban scape. We aim to

create a platform to share healthy visions by setting our time clock to the year 2050 to imagine relationships

between “Cities-Light-People”.


LPA 震 災 復 興 照 明 プロジェクト

Lighting Design Project for reviving from Earthquake Disaster

Aug.3 & Sep.20









Now in the third year of this project, last year we reused the mobile Akari Café kit, designed and put together the

year before, at two events in Ishinomaki, Miyagi Pref.

August:

The first event was held for residents living in the temporary housing blocks. At the local community center, we

held a simple lecture on lighting and then made lanterns that could be used in the housing. The Akari Café was

then used as a place to talk more freely with the residents and for them to experience different types of light.

This 4 part event was even attended by some of the elderly residents.

September:

We held a children’s lantern making event along with the Akari Cinema, an alfresco movie event by Okada Theatre

at the Ishinomori Comic Book Center. The lanterns were made from the same plastic material as the Akari Café

chairs and they were lined up to make a track of light.

We really enjoyed our time with residents of Ishinomaki and hope to go back again next year for another lighting event.

Spacious office for Hong Kong, a New Annex space for Tokyo

Due to expansion of the team three years since opening, our Hong Kong office has shifted to a new space.

Conveniently located in the East of Hong Kong island a minute away from Tai Koo subway station, the generous

space for 11 staff is three times bigger than the previous one, and is certainly spacious enough for conducting

lighting tests. Also, our Tokyo office has open a New Annex Studio space very close to the main office, with 9

designers working there.

Numerous projects received lighting design awards

“Sengukan at Ise jingu Shrine “ in Japan received the award of excellence from the Illuminating Engineering

Institute of Japan, “Intercontinental hotel in Osaka”, “ Park Royal hotel on Pickering” as well as “ Interlace ” in

Singapore received award of merit from Illuminating Engineering Society of North America. We understand that

such award programs have renewed their judging criteria, and we look forward to more and more active design

criticism.

Our traveling exhibition on lighting starts in 2015

To mark LPA’s 25th anniversary, a traveling exhibition titled “Nightscape 2050 - A dialogue between CitiesLight

People in the future ” will commence in Berlin from August 2015. The exhibition is not about showcasing LPA’s work,

it is about sharing visions for relationships between light and human in our future through experiencing different

kind of light, showing nightscapes around the world, interviews with visionaries and workshops with children. The

exhibition will travel to Singapore in November 2015, Hong Kong in January 2016, and finally to Tokyo in May 2016.

New book “LPA 1990-2015 “to be published

Our new monograph, selected 100 projects that LPA have worked on for the last 25 years, will be published around

July 2015. The field of architectural lighting has matured vastly in the last decades with the fast transition into the

current LED dominated industry and evolution of information technology which we think is leading the practice of

lighting design into the second phase. We believe this 400 page LPA book will give us an opportunity to go back to

our roots once again.

Renewal of the lighting detectives’ website

In order to be more user friendly, we have simplified our non- profit activity site “ lighting detectives ” website. The

address is http://shomei-tanteidan.org/en/ Please visit the site and we hope to have your participation!

Transnational lighting detectives – TNT Forum continues

After the successful forum held in Taipei in 2013, we had another wonderful TNT forum in Madrid, Spain in October

2014. We enjoyed the workshop with students analysing the current lighting issues and coming up with very

interesting proposals. The next forum will be happening in Mexico City in October 2015. Hope to see you there!

A 3-day workshop and Light Up Ninja event was held on August in Sao Paulo, Brazil. During the city walk we not

only looked for hero and villains of light, but also discussed what kind of nightscape is needed in Sao Paulo since

public safety and other issues are of concern in the city. During Light Up Ninja we illuminated one of the city’s

iconic buildings, Copan, for two hours. This workshop was a great hands-on opportunity to not only exercised

regular night walk, but we also debated and did actual experiments with several viable lighting proposals.

天 王 洲 Apr.16





Tennozu Aisle is a popular waterfront area with easy access to Shinagawa St., Tokyo St.,

and Haneda Airport. Since its peak in popularity in the 1990`s, we decided to survey the

extend of the development along this waterfront property.

谷 中 ・ 千 駄 木 ・ 根 津 Jun.25




Compared to the same old downtown like Asakusa or Kagurazaka, Yanesen (Yanaka/Nezu/

Sendagi) has more cozy atmosphere where we can feel traditional `Japanese daily life`. We

investigated the active shopping street through residential alley to find `lighting feature of

old street`.

戸 越 銀 座 Nov.07





About 1.3km, the longest shopping street in Tokyo, Togoshiginza Shopping Street is

consisted of three unions. Each union has its own designed pole-lights and arches. The

survey is to distinguish the lighting feature for each union and the whole shopping street.

Italy Feb. 01-11










Italy is an irresistible destination to travelers from all

over the world, including the Lighting Detectives. We

toured three big cities, Rome, Milan, and Firenze, and

two smaller cities, Bergamo and Siena, to discover the

nightscape and compare the illumination of historical

buildings and more modern structures. For most of the

historical architecture we visited the light source and color

temperature used depended on the building material

and color, with a slight shift to the use of LED fixtures.

In many churches and museums the effective use of

daylight incorporated into the structures was overwhelming.


Istanbul / Dubai Mar. 31- Apr. 06







The hub of the Middle East, Dubai. It has been 10 years since the

last survey of Dubai in 2003. We divided our survey into 2 parts

based on changes in the nightscape over the last 10 years; lighting

used to decorate the city and lighting of everyday use. However, in

Istanbul, Turkey the transition point between Europe and Asia, the

entire city is a cultural world heritage site. We surveyed the lighting

of this old city as it has developed over the centuries and preserved

its culture.

Myanmar Jun. 24-29







With the population of 60 million and the 2nd largest country in

South East Asia, Myanmar has not yet been well-known to the world

because of its isolated policy for over a half century. Reforming as

a democratic nation in recent years, Myanmar is now developing

very rapidly and its cities are witnessing fast urban growth. The

survey was made to "unveil" the role of light in three different cities.

Melbourne Nov. 10-15








For 4 years running, Melbourne has been chosen as the best place

in the world to live. City planning has successfully focused on public

space to build one of the world’s leading and charming cities. The

cityscape is a harmonious balance of old and new buildings. Main

avenues lined with trees and lampposts are beautifully maintained,

along with smaller alleyways, and even the waterfront along the river

flowing through the middle of the city is carefully planned. We

surveyed the Melbourne nightscape in search of the secret to its

coziness.

Nakano is a gourmet foodie`s heaven, Kichijoji is #1 on the list of Best Places

to Live in Tokyo, Asagaya is an artist’s playground, and all are stops on the Chuo

Line. The Chuo Line, unmistakable the main artery running west from Tokyo, is a

train line with many colorful and unique stations. During this city walk we traveled

from Nakano to Mitaka to discover the flavor and nightscape of each neighborhood.

虎 の 門 Aug.29





Summer was coming to an end, but on August 29th we went to visit the newest

place-to-be-in-Tokyo, Toranomon Hills. Over 40 members gathered for the walk

to investigate the lighting environment of the latest hot spot. Members were

surprised and awakened by the glamorous interior design.

銀 座 Oct. 24





To explore from different view, this tour is focused on "Back of Ginza" from micro

and macro. Expecting to find a feature lighting which is not existing in Harumi

Dori or Center Dori, to find out the street characteristics, each group should

produce colour temperature mapping.
