Historical structures and their contemporary add-ons

Old meets new in this fascinating collection of historical structures and their contemporary add-ons. And in this particular collection from Architizer, the newest additions are all on the roof. From the Metropolis Center in Bucharest to the incredible Secondary Landscape project in Tokyo, this photo collection is eye candy for all you armchair architects.

But why on the roof? Architizer staff writer James Bartolacci explains: ‘In dense cities, moving up provides the rare open space needed to expand square footage. These rooftop additions reinvigorate aging structures through new materials and innovative forms, while still complementing their context.’
