When walking in Paris, don’t forget to look up. Just as eyes have been called windows to the soul, windows are often the souls of Paris buildings. They are remnants of history, indicators of civic personality, and conduits for the renowned Parisian light. Fenestration takes many forms in Paris. Framed with wood, cast in cement, laid in stone, or shaped with zinc. Arched, oillet, bullseye, dormer, casement. Simple or adorned with awning, brise-soleil, wrought-iron balcony, or window box. All are reminders that there is more to life than just the façade.
