The exhibition showcases results of the research project “Windowology” which examines the meaning of windows in civilizations and cultures all over the world. Through themes the exhibition examines how windows influence our view of e.g. the environment, modern urban life, craftsmanship, architecture and literature. The exhibition was created by the Tokyo-based Window Research Institute and curated under direction of architecture historian and critic Igarashi Taro.
