in hong kong, windows betray the age of people’s homes. a revolution of window material & design took place around 80s & 90s in the 21st century and we entered the age of aluminum windows.
decades before, people embraced as much daylight in homes, they loved as many windows that are as high and wide as possible. then i guess because families started having children, for safety reason, iron window grilles were added.
very sad people now no longer treasure window especially opening them. air is much dirtier, but i still love keeping windows wide open to let in as much light and air.
