Dutch windows

Time and again, I have remembered the presentation by Sverre Fehn, where he showed a project he had completed in the Netherlands and talked about how he had been pleasantly surprised with how much glass one could use in a dutch residential project.

So many years later, as I walk the streets of Amsterdam, I recollect that talk and wonder at how the Dutch keep the interface between their houses and their streets both transparent and beautiful.
