In traditional Asian architecture, windows are more than a source for natural light and fresh air; they act as a “picture frame”  by outlining the beautiful image of the world outside for the homeowners inside.

Windows are like the eyes of a building through which we complete the connection between the two worlds of inside and outside.

Buddha said: “What you think, you become.What you feel, you attract. What you imagine, you create.”

Through the window, we create a poetic piece of art for the inside; through the window, we feel the natural beauty of outside; through the window, we imagine endless beauty we can create.

In this article, we’ve selected some beautiful windows in Asian architecture for you to enjoy the view through windows.

The perforated window with ornamental patterns creates mysterious “leaking scenery”.  As you move through the room and as the sun moves through the day, the scenes shift and move as well.

window in asian architecture - at Water Moon Monastery in Taiwan
The massive wooden Wall at Water Moon Monastery in Taiwan is entirely covered with a sacred scripture. As the sunlight shines through the carved-out Chinese characters of the Heart Sutra, the poetic wisdom is projected onto the interior surface, taking the role of “window” to another level by transforming the outside light with literal meaning.
