In this Third book, The Window, A Visual Survey, shows us how windows mirror the human condition, they are the eyes to the souls of architecture and play a critical role in the history of built form. It takes us to sixty cities to showcase the great diversity of window styles, type’s shapes, shadows, forms and the buildings they enhance. These are not just double hung windows, but urban form abstractions of shapes of texture and angles that allude to the beauty within architecture. Mostly about reflection and refraction of light and the poetics of form, this follow-on survey to the Fire Escape gives us a glimpse of how the window dramatically affects a buildings mood that it presents to us and how they also mirror the political development of American, or any culture’s contemporary society. Analogies in word mixed with abstract color, reflection and shadows illuminate the great American experiment and how the leaders of our= country are using architecture to purvey a philosophy that is their way of life. The Window gives us imagery with historic developments in the facades of both simple and complex pieces of architecture. These windows may surprise you to see their powerful emotions within.
