This book presents findings from the Tohoku University Taro Igarashi Laboratoryʼs Windowology research themed on “Window History” (2007–2009). The book looks at architecture from a historical perspective while focusing on the window, which is an architectural component that has existed in all times and places, including Western architecture, modern architecture, and Japanese architecture.
The discussion also considers a broad range of subjects beyond the realm of architecture, such as painting, photography, contemporary art, and technological history.
