Why don't we have more of these?

It's mostly only done for architectural art reasons because of glass distortion; obscuring interior reflection; the light is in the least useful part of the room and also difficult to control (it would look weird to have a shade drawn on one facing and open on the other); the view from inside the room is only the hypotenuse of the two sides; and the joint in the middle is going to be a problem due to house settling on two walls. It's also the expense of two windows (in dollars and wall real estate) but provides no cross-draft for room ventilation. And it doesn't work for general room mechanics -- normally furniture on the abutting side walls is pushed together to meet towards the corner, or we kitty-corner something there because the corner is depreciated for human use. If you put a full window there you need to leave the space open both for access and lighting. Basically, all the furniture gets pushed away from the corner and so you end up with less space in the room for furniture.

A window jammed right against the wall is the worst place for a window. Doing it again on the other side doesn't make it better.

So, um... that's why.

Then again, this allows for a very wide andle of view. Sure, there is a tradeoff, but still, to some this may be important. Especially if there's a nice enough view to look at.

Call me a fool or a moron or whatever, but dont modern buildings have its weight supported on the corners and/or the center supports?

Well, it could be a skeletal structure, but given you secure it well, even a standard wooden framework could do this. \the window is small and doesn't go across the whole wall. Then, it would be more problematic.
Though I am curious how exactly they solved the locking mechanism.

I'm just saying my house has these on opposite corners of the house and i thought it was pretty normal. Inb4 my house should be falling down.

That is an escape route.

Doesn't seem like it would be weatherproof.
