“Windowology” refers to the research activities YKK AP Inc. initiated in 2007 to explore the window as an academic subject. We have been working to contribute to the shaping of architecture, cities, and society through defining the positions of windows in history and culture, identifying their significance and roles, and shedding light on their appeal and potential.
