After being exhibited at the three Japan Houses in Los Angeles, São Paulo, and London, the exhibition Windowology: New Architectural Views from Japan opened at VILLUM Window Collection in Copenhagen, Denmark on 18 September 2022 and was on display through 15 Aug 2023 with free admission.
About the collaboration
In 2018, students of the Windowology research project visited VILLUM Window Collection (VWCO). The visit quickly resulted in several mutual trips between Window Research Institute (WRI) and VWCO, and the beginning of an inspiring collaboration.
“The entire experience was eye-opening. We learned that we are not the only ones working with windows and conveying the extent of their significance. On the other side of the world, people are doing the same.”
Says museum director of VWCO Dorthe Bech-Nielsen and continues:
“The Windowology project has enriched our knowledge of the importance of the window, especially in relation to different cultures around the world.
Our collaboration culminated in VWCO being able to display Windowology: New Architectural Views from Japan. We hope that this exhibition will also be an eye-opener for our guests. After all, a window is much more than just a building component.”
