Full Description
Iñaki Ábalos and Juan Herreros established their studio in Madrid in 1984 and working together until 2006, when the firm was dissolved. They mainly realised projects in Spain. Both architects are still active internationally, Iñaki Ábalos with Ábalos+Sentkiewicz, based in Madrid and Cambridge (MA), Juan Herreros with Estudio Herreros in Madrid. The archive of Ábalos & Herreros was donated to the Canadian Center for Architecture (CCA) in Montreal in 2012. It comprises some 250 projects dating from 1985-2008: sketches and drawings, collages, related text documents, slides and models.

This new book presents three contemporary encounters with the Ábalos & Herreros archive at CCA. The architects OFFICE Kersten Geers David Van Severen, Juan José Castellón and SO - IL conducted research into the archive and developed specific readings of the material. The book reframes these research projects, showing archival material in its current state and re-interpreting it. The essays offer more background to the research and also give voice to Iñaki Ábalos and Juan Herreros themselves. Richly illustrated, the book reveals as much about the interests of a new generation of architects as about the work of Ábalos & Herreros.
