Tokyo Midtown Design Hub (Participating Organisations: Japan Institute of Design Promotion, Japan Graphic Designers Association Inc., Musashino Art University Design Lounge) , in association with Window Research Institute , presents a Special Exhibition Windowology Exhibition "WINDOWSCAPE" from May 31 to June 15, 2014.
Windowology studies are focused on exploring windows as a subject of academic research. They aim to place windows into context, identify their significance, and convey their appeal in order to contribute to the betterment of architecture, cities, and society. The 1st Windowology exhibition features the work of the Tokyo Institute of Technology Yoshiharu Tsukamoto Lab. The Tsukamoto Lab has been studying windows on the themes of “Window Behaviorology”, “Window Streetscape-ology”, and “Window Genealogy” as part of the Windowology project since 2007. The show includes photographs and drawings of the windows they have found around the world, a presentation of the process behind their fieldwork, and an installation made by Atelier Bow-Wow for the Milano Salone. A number of lectures, talk events, and workshops on windows will also be held over the course of the exhibition.
