Suginami Architecture Exhibition 2020

Suginami Architecture Exhibition 2020  “Values of the future ~”

Period: 9/1 -9/11

Opening hours: 9:00 to 17:00 (until 13:00 on the last day)

Venue: Suginami Ward Gallery 2nd floor in Suginami Ward Office


Spatial design languages that have been used up until now, such as “Blurring boundaries” and “Designing a sense of distance,” suddenly attracted social attention after the spread of this infectious disease. We feel that it is an opportunity to test whether the wisdom of spatial composition that architects have practiced so far is useful for society. Through exhibitions and talk events, we will discover various “values for the future.”

“Attempt to integrate light, ceiling and structure”

We are exhibiting a project that attempts to build a new relationship between ceiling and light design in order to create a cozy and comfortable environment. The light that was installed on the floor as a lantern in ancient times was moved to the ceiling by the invention of the light bulb, and the invention of the fluorescent lamp, especially the circline (round fluorescent lamp), changed the lighting environment of the living room. Ceiling lights, which can ensure uniform and efficient floor illuminance, have become the standard for lighting. On the other hand, I think that there is a possibility of lighting that is integrated with the space due to the improvement of LED technology in recent years. In the three projects exhibited this time, we carefully read the positional relationship of the structure of the building and tried to integrate the structure and lighting while adding deformation to it. At this exhibition, we are producing and displaying a cross-section concept model with lighting.
