Publisher's Synopsis

A unique view on the windows in Northern Europe as seen through the eyes of a Japanese architect.

In his ongoing research into the effects of windows and how the different usages influence their design, the Japanese architect Yoshiharu Tsukamoto has travelled to Scandinavia and Finland. The result is this book, The Nordic Window - the first ever publication on the topic. Here, Tsukamoto and his students at the Tokyo Institute of Technology analyse a long list of canonical projects from the Nordic architectural tradition through beautiful photographs and elaborate drawings. His approach emphasises both the physical elements of the window, but also the more ephemeral aspects such as behaviour and atmosphere. This book is a study into how the design of windows is shaped by different cultures and social contexts. The fascination and tenderness shines through the text, while it presents a unique perspective on the architectural tradition that we are so familiar with. Through this exquisite example of Japanese craftsmanship, we are invited to see the Nordic architecture through the eyes of an acclaimed Japanese architect.
