“Windows represent civilization and culture”

About the Window Research Institute
The Window Research Institute is an incorporated foundation dedicated to contributing to the development of architectural culture through collecting and disseminating a wide range of ideas and knowledge related to windows and architecture, supporting research, and assisting and organizing cultural initiatives. In addition to conducting in-house research activities, the Institute has been working together with other research institutions, museums, private agencies, etc. both in and outside Japan on international interdisciplinary projects focused on themes such as architecture, culture, and art.
The exhibition The Window: A Journey of Art and Architecture Through Windows to be held at The National Museum of Art, Tokyo is but one of a number of cross-genre projects that the Institute is currently developing. Others include an architecture exhibition that will be traveling to the Japan Houses (the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japanʼs strategic cultural hubs in London, Los Angeles, and São Paulo) from the spring of 2020 and a book that it will be co-publishing with the Canadian Centre for Architecture (Montreal). The Institute hopes that everyone will look forward to their diverse activities in the years to come.
