It would be nice to anticipate that some of the design attitudes which are accepted for motor vehicles will be applied to buildings. Windows with glass to rubber seals and blinds which operate automatically will surely be developed in the next century or so. Liquid crystal The idea of the liquid crystal, which can be made transparent or opaque by the application of an electrostatic field, is already under development for large sheets of glass, and is a spin-off of the computer display screen. We can expect the windows to be shaded with computer-controlled colour patterns.
The difference between curtains and shutters is hardly important. The idea of blowing insulating beads between two layers of glass has also been tried in the United States. All of these solutions need to be developed. They should also be controlled automatically so that whenever the light flow through the window is small or not needed, then the insulating system is automatically brought into play. In general there needs to be means of making windows perform as well as walls when there is no light.
