Throughout the 20th century the arbitration house has dominated the landscape of international commercial dispute resolution withthe court house providing another part of the structural landscape. In the 21st century foundations are being laid for construction of a free-standing mediation house in international dispute resolution practice. Meanwhile a closer inspection of arbitration house reveals the ongoing construction of mediation and other ADR windows in its design. In this paper I explore how and why mediation windows are being built, their structural and functional soundness and the extent to which they may open up and transform arbitration.
