European Doors & Windows

Have you noticed, as we drive through towns and villages our heads turn, looking at the unique details of the buildings and the visual balance of it. Windows and doors, along with architectural details are an integrated part of this.

It was no different for Nigel and John when they went on their individual European trips. From their personal adventures and the wild use of their cameras, we will have an opportunity to experience what they saw.

Nigel will walk us through doors and windows, talking and featuring their unique details and discuss how they are put together. John will discuss individual windows in traditional and modern Swiss Architecture.  Together, they will show us how some of these windows and doors are used in combination with architectural details to visually feature and balance the mass of the structure. With Nigel’s European construction experience, he will demonstrate in sketches, how some of the window and door details are achieved as presented in the pictures of these architectural structures.
