The preservation of a historically significant building sometimes clashes with the need to change its use. This issue explores a particular architectural solution, one that preserves the existing structure while extending it within the vertical. The resulting hybrid offers an intriguing interface between old and new, as seen in Herzog & de Meuron’s recently opened Elbphilharmonie, Zaha Hadid’s Port House in Antwerp, and Matrera Castle by Carquero Arquitectura. Also in this issue, special features on pavilion morphology and the shipping container typology, plus the new urban landmarks Malmö Live by Schmidt Hammer Lassen and Rotterdam’s Timmerhuis by OMA.
