MFA寫論文 - Skin of Light

是的~念的雖然是Master of Fine Arts(MFA)
不過寫論文還是規劃在課程內的
聽說是這幾年才加進來的
一開始知道要寫論文還真的滿失ㄘㄨㄚ\的
雖然比起其他program
動不動寫個論文就要上百頁
我們lighting只要求20個page(純文字)
感覺是好很多
不過之前在台灣連個正式一點的paper也沒寫過
不要說是二十頁,就算是十二頁也沒寫過

寫作文一直就不是我的專長之一
更何況是用英文寫
而且之前在台灣寫報告什麼的
也很少真的花時間跟精力在做research的
大多是網路上找找資料
結合手邊超有限的內容
一份報告就這樣交出去了
可是這種方式在這裡可是完全行不通的
這裡寫什麼東西都要引經據典
而且都要列出出處
連要怎麼列都有特定的格式要遵守

不過還好學校有安排一門課協助寫論文的課
任課的老師很優秀
重點不只是她很清楚我們可能遇到的問題
而是她很關心學生
寫了一個學期, 我竟然光文字就寫了33頁
加上圖片跟附錄也有厚厚一疊60頁
自己看了都覺得有點不可思議
不過也因為這門課
我才學會要怎麼做research

Skin of Light(光的皮層)是我的論文標題
主要的論點是說我認為建築照明中的facade lighting
也就是立面照明,應該要考量到當地的都市紋理
換句話說就是用lighting design去對應當地的歷史.文化.人文.社會現象...等等
而這樣的lighting design就會在建築的外部空間形成所謂光的皮層
藉由操作這個光的皮層,我們就能達到重整夜間街景的目的
30幾頁的本文實在太長啦~
所以就放個摘要...只是也有點長就是了
有興趣的人就自己看囉~

Skin of Light: a tool to reorganize the nocturnal street image

The city we live in is constantly changing its appearance, as some people use the term “identity”, the street we just walked by is altering itself as well. Treading on the heels of Industrial Revolution in the late 18th and early 19th centuries is the rapid centralization of population emerging in the cities. Though the Industrial Revolution first turned up in British, its influence subsequently spread across Atlantic Ocean and arrived at the North America. Corresponding to the growing population and its need for the dwellings and working place, cities have been prompt to grow and change their appearance. New York City is a perfect example for this transition. 200 years ago, residents there only built low-scale houses, partially due to the social status as an agricultural community and the low building technology. Over time, these buildings were replaced by high-rise residential buildings and office blocks. Then nowadays in 2008, there are over 5,500 high-rise building all over the city. The time has proclaimed that architecture is going to embody the dream of the Tower of Babel and so is the lighting in the city now standing on a novel stage.

The development of cities also articulates the transition of lighting conditions in urban streets. In terms of more and more high-rise buildings, it means there will be more and more amount of light coming into the streets. No matter it is yellowish light leaking out from a restaurant window near the sidewalk or a commercial signage on the second floor glowing with its neon bulb or even a media façade that is playing commercial films going from bottom to top of a high-rise office building, all the light from these vertical architectural facades alters the lighting condition in the streets and become more and more critical components of the street nightscape. In “Letter to Aldo Rossi”, Andrew MacNair brought out the idea of “Seven Skins of Architecture” which organize the relationship between the environment and humans. In between the fourth and fifth skin—which indicates the skin of outside surfaces of the building and the skin of the collective surfaces of all outsides of building including the sidewalks, ground, gardens, street— I am proposing there is another skin which I call it “ Skin of light” which will make the system more complete. And this skin will be serving as a catalyst for dematerialization of the architectural façade, reversing the impression of the buildings and reforming a novel nocturnal street image. In addition—also most important of all—by designing this skin along a street, it can serve as a navigator of renewal and engage the surrounding streets and the community.

In the 1920s, the German architect Hugo Haring predicted that the “nocturnal face” of architecture would be soon more important than the “diurnal face.” 60 years later in Japan, lighting designer Kaoru Mende and architect Toyo Ito created “Tower of Winds” in Yokohama, Japan to demonstrate there is an opportunity to turn an inert building façade into an alluring beauty though light. During the day the Tower of Winds stands as a 70-foot tall opaque object enclosed itself with aluminum cladding. At night the lights and reflective surfaces dance to the music (and noise) of the city, computer-controls reacting to both artificial and natural forces: ambient sounds, wind forces, time of day and season, and give it various appearances. Without physically deconstructing the building, they successfully used light to dematerialize the architectural façade; soon their work became a nocturnal landmark and reversed the street image. With this paper, I will use several case studies all around the world to demonstrate through what I named as “Skin of Light”, we are establishing a new relationship among the buildings, streets and humans. With careful programming and control, light coming out from the vertical façade of architecture will become a useful tool to create the street images and communicate with people.
