The Window

Through mediating light, wind and views, the architectural element of the window connects the domestic world within a building, with the natural world outside.  

This week, students each designed a window for a site in Krabbesholm. They began by analysing the windows around them through sketching – reflecting on the primary functions of a window: ventilation, illumination, filtration, or framing. They then translated their observations into their own imagined opening – using drawing and glass-work as their primary tools. The glass fragments focused on enhancing the view or quality of light, while the axonometric drawings explored the spatial qualities and relationship between inside and out.
