Projects by some of the worlds leading designers, including Rem Koolhaas, Shigeru Ban, and Jean Nouvel, illustrate the unlimited design potential of the window, as well as the breadth of creativity demonstrated by contemporary architects.

Each project is illustrated with colour photographs and architectural drawings and is accompanied by a lively and incisive text.
