Windowology is a project through which we have been exploring windows academically together with researchers and architects. If we had to describe what windows are now based what we have accumulated so far, we might loosely define them as "things that accompany us in our daily lives and bring joy to our living activities". This exhibition regards the knowledge and sensibilities surrounding windows as elements of a universal culture and turns a fresh eye on the appeal of windows.
