Since the 20th century, the growth in size of glass panes, culminating in the invention of the glass curtain wall, has generalized the window: it is nom everywhere and nowhere. Glass, which initially seemed the perfect partner for the window, took over entirely. The former accoutrements of the window-shading devices, bars for security, handless with wich to open the windows – are internalized in the glass itself, becoming invisible, or discarded entirely… glass controls solar gain and radiation, provides unrivalled insulation, generates energy, and conveys digitized information… Fewer and fewer windows can be opened, offering enormous uninterrupted views of the world but no physical contact with it.
