This volume presents hundreds of manifestations of one aspect of Japanese architecture: the window. Covering all manner of examples, typologies, and functions, the richly illustrated anthology gives a technical analysis of each, with photographic views from both exterior and interior, as well as diagrams detailing how interior space and functions correlate with the openings in the various buildings’ facades. Whether for light, ventilation, accessibility, permeability, (in)visibility, or a combination of these things, the humble window is revealed in its crucial role in determining how a specific architectural object is designed, constructed, perceived, and utilised.
