A blind arcade is a series of blind arches that are filled-in instead of being left open as with traditional arcades. Rather than having a load-bearing function, a blind arcade is often included in masonry facades as an ornamental element, with well-defined columns.
A variation of the blind arcade is the ‘raking blind arcade’ which is a blind arcade that is slanted to varying degrees.
