Yoshiharu Tsukamoto of Atelier Bow-Wow tours the world in his quest to seek out and analyse the behaviour of windows. Featuring gorgeous photographs of hundreds of these objects and their associated interior and exterior spaces – from the mundane to the beautiful and enigmatic – the book explores how windows can create uniquely cultural, urban, and social spaces, as well as stimulate activities like rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation. By focusing on this architectural typology, Tsukamoto offers commentary on the allure and fascination of windows, and how they help to generate positive spaces within buildings, which in turns leads to an energising and refreshing sense of living.
