Hiroshi Sambuichi Wins 2018 Daylight Award for His “Timeless, Fluid” Treatment of Light

Hiroshi Sambuichi‘s approach to a site entails long-term study and reflection upon the qualities and forces of nature embedded within. His understanding is “deeper and with a finer grain,” explains American architect and member of The Daylight Award jury James Carpenter as one of several reasons why Sambuichi was recently announced as the latest laureate of the nearly 50-year-old Daylight Award in 2018. In Sambuichi’s hands, “light becomes timeless, fluid and rich.”

“An example is The Naoshima Hall,” says Carpenter. “It sits remarkably compressed within the landscape. As in all his work, Sambuichi’s mastery in framing volumes of light is here expressed as a horizontal work of spatial release, converting an intimate moment into an intense collective engagement with the natural world.”

“Sambuichi’s work, in such projects as the Miyajima Misen Observatory and Hiroshima Orizuru Tower, constantly explores the thin film of space which we occupy on earth—a sliver of tactility, the richness of an intimate ecology. This awareness of the narrow band of topography, our sedimentary layer of life, with the weight of time below coupled with the weightlessness of time above us, is the world revealed by his work.”

“All architects speak of the site being important for the work, “ Carpenter says. “For Sambuichi, there is a much deeper and finer grain to his understanding of the site. It is an understanding that resonates with the forces of the wind, rain, sun and earthen elements, speaking to a more metaphysical sublime.”

Since 1980, The Daylight Award has recognized prominent practitioners in the fields of daylight in architecture and daylight research for the benefit of human health, well-being, and the environment. In addition to the honor, the laureates each receive €100,000 for their groundbreaking work and dedication to daylight. The Daylight Award is presented by the philanthropic foundations, VILLUM FONDEN, VELUX FONDEN and VELUX STIFTUNG. Find out more about the award on their website.

Kjellander+Sjöberg Architects have won the competition for Nacka Port, a new sustainable and dynamic urban block. The award-winning architecture firm, which is one of the leading architectural offices in Scandinavia will build the project in an area between Nacka and Stockholm, Sweden.

Out of the three architecture offices who were invited to compete, the latter being held in discourse with the Nacka Municipality and Architects Sweden, Kjellander Sjöberg’s proposal contributes to a “vibrant urban context with an inviting and varied program.”

Nacka Port is an urban area situated between Sickla köpkvarter, a commercial center, and the district of Hammarby Sjöstad, an area with old industrial buildings and an archipelago environment. The competition program highlighted the importance of the project’s context and called for a solution to how experiences can be created and valued. The proposed building has the ability to reinforce the identity, routes, and nodes of the region as well as expand the connections within the area’s setting.

Nacka Port is a great opportunity to work out a project with three dimensional sculptural qualities as well as a humanistic and dynamic program. The block has great potential to become a sustainable and vibrant environment, increasing the concentration of the area.

The project is a three-dimensional urban block with a series of flexible and open squares, diagonally placed on site. In addition to their varying characteristics, these squares are placed facing the nearby traffic, attracting residents and initiatives by markets and open-air cafes. The area surrounding the block provides open spaces where pedestrians and cyclists can visit. In addition, a unified volume towards the southwest is divided into two towers of different heights.

The squared recessions formed by the staggered facades of the towers create private and communal terraces ideal for greenery. The structure is mainly designed to provide distinct impressions from different angles and directions, creating a “three-dimensional fluid experience”.

The project group has concluded that Kjellander Sjöberg’s proposal is the most convincing in its unification of architectural quality and functional demands. The proposal presents an outstanding and well thought-out analysis and understanding of the site and its surroundings. The project is characterized by an overall sustainability concept that, besides choosing environmentally friendly construction materials, provides residents and visitors with a sustainable urban experience of green structures, flexible surfaces, spaces for temporary activities, and places for cyclists and pedestrians.
– Excerpt from the jury statement.

Commissioned by Nacka Port AB, the project’s planning process has already begun, seeking an official binding development in 2020.

The Nacka Port’s main concept is to have a “positive vision of the future” creating a suitable life for both humans and the planet. Focusing on the ecosystem services, the architecture is carbon positive, created with renewable material and a healthy micro-climate. Kjellander Sjöberg’s Nacka Port will be an urban and sustainable block which connects and creates a viable lifestyle.
