This clerestory window, which wraps a corner of a living area in a fairly light and modern residence, gives the impression that the ceiling/roof floats above the walls. The extension of the ceiling beyond the plane of the walls means that the light coming in via the clerestories is indirect, giving the room plenty of light without too much heat or glare

This residence in Seattle, Wash. unifies some disparate pieces: the entry door, a corrugated metal wall, a glass wall and an exterior stair heading to the roof. The 5-shape actually expresses the vertical movement from the front yard to the roof.
Given the predilection for flat roofs in modern and contemporary architecture, most of these ribbons make right-angle turns. Projecting from the glass or other walls behind them, they may function as sun shades, but for the most part they are formal devices that stress continuity and break down traditional hierarchy. They also resemble symbols, inadvertently creating 2s, 5s, ?s, and S-shapes
This house was designed by Steven Ehrlich, one of the most capable architects practicing in a neo-Corbusian manner. It includes many corner windows, but also ribbon windows. One visible on the left side of this photo doubles as a corner window. Note how the long window works in concert with the awning below it.
Windows: The first floor of this house in Westlake, Texas features full-height glass walls, while upstairs the exterior walls are white with ribbon windows snaking around the perimeter. This approach gives more openness to the living spaces downstairs and privacy to the bedrooms upstairs, but it also reverses traditional notions of weight, by placing the apparently heavier walls above the lighter ones. Le Corbusier would be pleased with this design.
