Norway's Tax Evading Secret

The bricked windows of the Norway pavilion act as a protest against taxes. Residents of Norway were at a time assessed a tax based upon the number of windows in their home. Given glass was expensive, the tax assessors reasoned that the more windows a homeowner had, the more taxes they could pay. However, Norwegians cleverly evaded this "window tax" by boarding or bricking up the windows they felt they could live without. In this case, it was the higher windows in the tower.
