       Sasaki recently won an Honor Award in Urban Design from the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) for their pioneering work on Jiading Park in Shanghai. The 70 hectare (173 acre) park was recognized for its sustainable initiatives impacting both the environment and the surrounding community, and has become the social and recreational hub of Jiading District. Leni Schwendinger Light Projects worked closely with Sasaki on the visitors’ nighttime experience. The lighting design creatively solved several challenges including mirroring distinct pathway designs during late hours and providing a dark conservation area for wildlife. Leni led the debate on safety for visitors vs. nurturing needs of nocturnal fauna, a discussion that continues to evolve to this day. Her commitment to providing safe and inspiring nighttime outdoor spaces greatly contributed to the success of the project as a 24/7 amenity. The Sasaki design team looks forward to working with Leni to explore creative lighting solutions on future projects."
