Window Workology

This research examined windows that "work" alongside people by controlling natural elements such as light, wind, and steam in manual workplaces in Japan. In this series, we will explore the ways in which such windows have been found to interconnect objects, people, nature, and the street, as observed through field surveys of workshops and workplaces that maintain unique values and practices rooted in their particular localities.
"Window Workology" was conducted in collaboration with the Yoshiharu Tsukamoto Laboratory at the Tokyo Institute of Technology as part of the YKK AP Window Research Institute’s Windowology research program.
