The Japanese architect Yoshiharu Tsukamoto, in his ongoing research into the effects of windows and how the different uses affect their design, has traveled to Scandinavia and Finland. The result is this book, 'The Nordic Window' - the first ever publication on the subject.

In the book, Tsukamoto and his students at the Tokyo Institute of Technology analyze a large number of canonical projects from the Nordic architectural tradition through beautiful photographs and detailed drawings. His approach emphasizes both the physical elements of the window, but also the more ephemeral aspects such as behavior and atmosphere.

This book is a study of how the design of windows is shaped by different cultures and social contexts. The fascination and tenderness shines through the text, while at the same time providing a unique perspective on the architectural tradition with which we are so familiar.

Through this exquisite example of Japanese craftsmanship, we are invited to see Nordic architecture through the eyes of a renowned Japanese architect.

Yoshiharu Tsukamoto is one of the founding members of the renowned Japanese architectural studio Atelier Bow-Wow and teaches at the Tokyo Institute of Technology. Together with his studio, he has previously published the books 'Pet Architecture Guide Book' and 'Made in Tokyo'.
