In this second volume, Atelier Bow-Wow shifts from studying the behavioural characteristics of the window typology to investigating their origins, history, and relationships. How humans experience encounters with each other and the spaces inside and outside buildings is key to deciphering how combinations of context and environmental factors lead to various functions and typologies in different regions. From Belgium, France, Germany, and Spain, to Vietnam, Hong Kong, China, and Japan, the quest spans a variety of buildings and streetscapes, encompassing both the contemporary and historic. The result is a remarkable collection of photographs and analyses.
