Publisher's Comments

Since the late 19th century when improvements in technology allowed society to explore new aesthetic relationships between windows and buildings, architects have embraced the opportunity to use the window as a prominent architectural statement. In recent years numerous architects of note, including Rem Koolhaas, Shigeru Ban, Jean Nouvel, Richard Rogers and Frank Gehry have experimented with the window and its design potential.
