This issue on historic preservation illustrates the many facets of the field, including restoration, rehabilitation, and adaptive reuse. The articles explore how preservation can successfully work in tandem with sustainable and contemporary design while maintaining the integrity of a historic building. The projects featured are a small sample of the diversity of the architectural heritage found throughout the state and range from a 19th-century courthouse to a Philip Johnson residence. Projects such as the expansion of a Beaux-Arts centennial hall and the rehabilitation of a simple brick industrial building demonstrate the creativity involved in working with historic buildings and the fundamental role they play in the larger context of Texas cities and towns.
