A Thousand Windows is an exploration of building facades that become infinite reticles of repetitive cells, which contain in them the concept of unifying the relationship of the human with the world, or rather, a way of removing all individuality and converting the human in a robot destined to repeat his work daily inside his cell until his death. The uniformity of these cells is broken by the impulse of each inhabitant to seek to "personalize" their landscape, all this subtracted by the new form of facades with reflective windows that hide everything and become a reflection of what surrounds these buildings.
