What is your name?

Josh Liu

Where do you work?

Crème Jun Aizaki Architecture & Design

Where are you from?

Vancouver, British Columbia

How did you get here?

I went to Pratt to get into Interior Design, and now in NYC plus 10 years. Time flies!

How long have you been designing lighting?

I started working at Schwinghammer lighting since 2011, but I always had a huge crush on lighting design.

What is your first memory of lighting?

I grew up in the city center of Taiwan in the 80’s, I remembered all the colorful bright signage neon lights running down the main streets at night.

Do you have a favorite lighting project?

My absolute favorite lighting project is James Turrell’s installation at the Guggenheim. I remembered looking up into the Rotunda. It’s colorful, soothing, mesmerizing.

What is your favorite installation / lighting experience?

I worked on lighting the Polo RL 5th Ave Store, restaurant and exterior. It’s always about creating a mood with the RL brand. I find that by paying attention to light and shadow creates dramatic ambiance and experience.
