LOUVERS! Vertical Louvers All Over! NOTHING BUT LOUVERS!

Are you unaware of what louvers are?  Would you like me to explain what they are to you? Are you annoyed that I keep asking questions, wasting time being funny, and sidetracking myself from just saying what louvers are? Well congratulations, I’ll help you out with that problem. Anyway, louvers are essentially a set of shutter-like fin devices that allow or prevent light and air from entering any space.  To the left (to the left…I apologize) is a house in Japan that is, well, more louver than house, but those giant white fins allow shadows to move around the home’s interior — depending on what time of day it is.  

The focal feature of this house, designed by architects Shintaro Fujiwara and Yoshio Muro, is those louvers that allow sunlight to be felt in any direction within the interior.  Essentially, the house’s large, white façade curves along the shape of the nearby street, and between each large louver is a two-story window.  It’s truly wonderful what this structure can do with something as simple and plentiful as natural sunlight.
