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.

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

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.
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.
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
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.

The 11th Forum was held in Madrid, Spain. A city with very old
history, however, the theme was “NEW CITY_NEW PEOPLE_
NEW LIGHT” and we talked with Madrid residents about the
city’s lighting now and in the future.
A panel of 5 Lighting Detectives and 8 local Madrid
artists, designers, and creators each gave a mini
10 minute talk
Orientation began with the introduction of the Lighting
Detectives and members, the purpose of city walks, and
how city walks are conducted. Participants were then
divided into 4 groups to discuss chosen survey areas.
Students who did preliminary surveys of the areas
explained theories on lighting heroes and villains and
discussed the basic lighting environment.
After discussing possible problems in the 4 areas,
the groups set off on their 3-hour city walks.
all groups had a difficult time finding lighting
At the workshop, each group discussed the results from the
previous night’s city walk and started preparing for the forum
presentation. Through collective feedback, each group
chose heroes and villains of light and then discussed at
length what was good, bad, and how to make each
situation a better lighting environment.
At the symposium, each area was discussed further in depth. Panelists
added more hero and villains of light and improvement strategies.
After the Forum, the party took a day trip to visit the Palacio Real de La Granja of
Felipe V. We toured the baroque style palace and garden in the cool autumn air.
Near the palace we also toured a historical glass making studio and learned about
the impressive development in technique and tools.

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.
