ニコラス・G・ハイエック センター











NICOLAS G. HAYEK CENTER

TOKYO 2007 SHIGERU BAN ARCHITECTS

This building is a combined Swatch Group showroom

and corporate headquarters. The building, facing Ginza

Central Avenue, has a large half open-air atrium with

a green wall. Our challenge was to create a lighting

environment that enhances the green theme without

losing functionality in the showrooms. During the day,

2000lx downlights + cove lighting inside the green wall

gradually change color and intensity from dusk to dark.


ミッドランド スクエア









MIDLAND SQUARE

AICHI 2007 NIKKEN SEKKEI / TOWA REAL ESTATE / TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION. / THE MAINICHI

NEWSPAPERS.

After the successful World Expo 2006 in Nagoya, Japan, the city is giving Tokyoites something to talk about

as it transforms into a new and exciting metropolis. The opening of a new project near Nagoya Station is a

symbolic presence in this transformation. The latest in LED technology was standardized and freely incorporated

to achieve the project concept of fantastic and kinetic space. Light balloons in the large atrium move up and

down to the rhythm of light and music and lighting along the promenade creates the illusion of a sea of clouds

for an interactive and double-the-fun shopping experience.

PHUKET 2007 LAGUNA RESORTS & HOTELS / LAGUNA BANYAN TREE

The Banyan Tree is a luxury resort on the island of Phuket in Thailand. The Thailand-style villas are situated

around a lagoon. To create a night view, the roof of each villa is illuminated, making it visible from the opposite

shore and producing a quiet reflection on the water surface. Each villas is complete with a private pool and

small fiber optics indication on the bottom of the pool are arranged in random pattern creating a fantasy-like

atmosphere.


明 治 神 宮










MEIJI JINGU

TOKYO 2007 MEIJI JINGU

Meiji Jingu is a shrine in the middle of a 70,000-m2 plot of land surrounded by a beautiful green forest.

Since its construction almost 88 years ago, Japanese have come here to pray for world and inner peace.

After proceeding through the large entrance gate, a long, stately approach continues through the forest to

the south gate and then on to the shrine pavilions. This sequentiality is amazing. To commemorate the

restoration of a fire-damaged pavilion 50 years ago and to share the beauty of Meiji Shrine at dusk. was the

endeavor of this project. Minimal lighting would create the most beauty for the deep and pure darkness

surrounding the shrine and was carefully placed to illuminate the vegetation, gates, and pavilion during a

mock up. The result was an unexpected, one-of-a-kind nightscapes. The 50th anniversary illumination of

Meiji Shrine will be available for public viewing in the autumn of 2008.


日 田 市 民 文 化 会 館







PATRIA HITA

OITA 2007 KOHYAMA ATELIER

This arts and culture facility is for the use of local residences, including a small and large auditorium

and display gallery. The interior is finished in locally found materials such as Japanese cedar and plaster.

Soft up lighting to the timber ceiling and the cedar luminous wall helps to enhance the warmth of these

materials and create a nightscape with regional characteristics. (In collaboration with LightingM)


中 国 国 家 大 劇 院









NATIONAL GRAND THEATER OF CHINA

BEIJING 2007 PAUL ANDREU ARCHITECT

Right in front of the Forbidden City and hidden under a gigantic titanium dome is the opera house. Construction

had started and just as the project was entering its most interesting stage, LPA was commissioned to plan the

public area lighting inside the dome. With all of the natural light filling the dome and complexity, the lighting

environment needed special attention. During the design process we analyzed possible movements of visitor

viewpoints throughout the dome and prioritized them into 12 categories for background luminance simulations.

Unfortunately we were not commissioned to continue our work during the supervision phase and the result is

not our intended lighting effect. Generally, this is a problem with most projects in China. Ideally, a consistent

design office should be contracted all the way through to the end of the supervision phase.


東 京 倶 楽 部 ビルディング










TOKYO CLUB BUILDING

TOKYO 2007 NIHON SEKKEI / MITSUI FUDOSAN

A project to rebuilt the Tokyo Club Building adjacent to

the Kasumigaseki Building. Facing the Kasumigaseki

Building, on both sides of the double-skinned façade,

two lines of blue light extend up towards the sky,

adding a fresh look to the area. The design for the

lower portion of the building is an integrated design with

the surrounding buildings and the lighting plan helps

to create one continuous space.

adjustments.

a bright image of nostalgia.
