AP164: ABALOS & HERREROS. Kersten Geers et al. Canadian Centre for Architecture, Montreal, 2016. Published in association with Park Books, Zurich. Distributed in the U.S.A. by University of Chicago Press. 208 pp. with 376 ills. (110 col.). 31 x 24 cm. ISBN 9783038600060 In English.
Publisher's description: Inaki Abalos and Juan Herreros established the renowned architectural firm Abalos and Herreros in Madrid in the 1980s. At the time, following the end of the Franco regime, architects were more highly valued for their technical ability than for their contributions to theoretical research. In this context, Abalos and Herreros's deliberate and continuous melding of tremendous technical work with a range of publications and curatorial projects presented a remarkable challenge to assumptions about what the purpose of an architect ought to be. In 2006, the Canadian Centre for Architecture obtained the Abalos and Herreros archive which contains more than 250 documents, sketches, slides, models, collages, and drawings in both print and digital form, dating from the firm's creation in 1984 through 2006 when its founders decided to pursue other projects. The archive presents a compelling opportunity to reconstruct Abalos and Herreros's planning and design process -- a process developed through exhaustive research and conversations between the architects and the collaborators and artists involved in their projects.
