The History of a Window: The Eye to the World
The first windows were invented during the Roman Empire, around 100 AD. The earliest windows were made of flattened animal horn, which was thin enough to allow light to pass through. The glass window was invented in the Roman Empire around 100 AD, but it wasn't until the 17th century that clear glass windows were widely available.
The first clear glass windows were produced in the 14th century in Germany. However, these early glass panes were small and expensive, and were only used in churches and wealthy homes. It wasn't until the 17th century that clear glass windows became more widely available and affordable.
The invention of the window has had a profound impact on architecture and design. Windows allow natural light to enter buildings, which can improve mood and productivity. They also provide ventilation and insulation, which can help regulate temperature and reduce energy costs.
