In architecture, a "breezeway" is a corridor with a roof, but no walls, used to connect two enclosed structures. The concept is a fairly obvious one, and examples of unenclosed corridors go back to the monumental architecture of the sunny Mediterranean. However, in the contemporary United States, the most common use of a breezeway is just as a corridor to connect a detached outbuilding, such as a garage, to a main building. Basically, it functions as a way to walk to the car in the morning without getting rained on.
