45 contemporary European architects were given the task to design a fictional building expansion in line with the principles of the existing building. A relevant question in an era when architecture increasingly seems to occur without the context being taken into account. The result is a collection of dialogues between contemporary architects and the past.

A new generation of European architects, including Stephen Bates, Happel Cornelisse Verhoeven, Donna van Milligen Bielke, Monadnock, Dierendonckblancke, Humblé Martens, OFFICE Kersten Geers en David van Severen, Nu Architectuuratelier and Offi ce Winhov, is looking for rooted values rather than indiscriminate forms. Architecture as evolution, rather than revolution.
