Building with no window

The window is the traditional ventilation of a structure be it a house or a building. But now that climate change is here the architectural design has been affected. Getting popular among noted architects here are houses and buildings that have no window. This is a tropical country and air conditioning is a must. A house with air conditioning does not need a window and having no window is economical. Or is it, really?

That would really be an unhealthy place to live in.
And artificial oxygen is not good for our health.
We need windows and we need to breathe in fresh air.

Modern architects use a lot of steel, concrete and glass in their buildings and then install airconditioners which make the buildings literally huge heat traps. I can imagine how claustrophobic I would feel in a building with no windows. Also, in case of fires, how will they rescue people trapped in such windowless building?
