Grafts: The Old and the New in Architecture


Architecture is an expression of the principles, priorities and preoccupations of the culture and society that produces it. So said the Modernist architects of the early 20th century, who called architecture a ‘living art’ because of its intimate relationship with society. For Modernists, architecture was an art that expressed the ‘spirit of the time’, the zeitgeist. From this perspective, if a building ceases to express the spirit of the time, it becomes old; in a sense, it dies. This relationship between architecture and time – the past, the present and the future- remains a central theme in debates around the status, function and meaning of buildings. It is the theme of this issue of C3 magazine.
The title of this issue is Grafts. A graft is the insertion of something living into something damaged or dead – it is a bridge between the old and the new. In architecture a graft could be understood as an insertion of new architecture into an old building. ‘New’ architecture is living architecture, it is that which we recognize as expressing our present time, our ‘now’. ‘Old’ architecture is that which expresses a past time, something that belongs to history. Therefore discussing the relationship between old and new architecture involves addressing two separate but related issues: architecture’s relationship with time and our relationship with history.

Detachment and Engagement - The Art of Architectural Grafting


The majority of architects do not benefit from large new projects on virginal vacant land, but rather from more modest interventions in, on, or alongside existing buildings. Approaches to the challenge of working with the constraints of an existing building vary widely. Renovating or grafting onto an existing building clearly poses challenges, but also provides myriads of opportunities. Challenges and risks posed by designing in and around existing buildings are real. A good renovation or extension requires time (which is expensive), patience and skill, as well as precise cost planning and scheduling. A sound knowledge of historic forms, construction methods, and materials is also an essential ingredient.
If architects or clients are in any way skeptical about the possibility of creating a high quality design within an existing historic building or extending an old building, then the numerous projects showcased in this issue of C3 will surely inspire them to see new potential in old buildings. Featured here are projects representing a wide range of typologies, from a teahouse in Hutong to an outdoor ice pavilion in St Moritz, a museum in a concrete World War II bunker in Berlin to a chapel in Cáceres, a bagel shop in rural Japan to a single-family house in Washington D. C. to name just a few. Though completely different in context, all have in common a rigorous approach and all display deep sensibility and respect to the architecture that has existed on their sites for decades or even centuries. The projects presented are proof that grafting onto an existing building can enhance old buildings, creating fascinating, intricate spaces that tease the imagination and beckon to be explored.
