blind window

Isaac Kremer/ September 9, 2018/ / 0 comments

A feature attached or engaged to a wall, with no openings or glazing, used decoratively for architectural effect to conceal. Similar features include a blind arcade, blind tracery, and blind wall. The term window blind describes devices that partially or wholly prevent light for passing through an opening, thus making it blind. A blind window may be an original feature to a building, or a modification as uses inside the building change causing the view in or out of the window to be obscured, or for security purposes to limit access in or out of the building, or both. Alternately called blank window, dead window, false window, or glukhie shatry in Russian. Photo from New York City, New York, 2018. (Kremer, 2023)
