This book presents three contemporary encounters with the Ábalos&Herreros archive at the CCA. Kersten Geers and David Van Severen, Juan José Castellón González, and Florian Idenburg and Jing Liu developed readings of the material, which they articulated through exhibitions and presentations. The book reframes these research projects and shows archival material as it was taken out of the box and reinterpreted.

Texts consist of elaborations on the research, exhibitions and presentations and give voice to the three curators as well as to Iñaki Ábalos and Juan Herreros themselves. Illustrations of the archival material appear throughout the book, and photographs by Stefano Graziani explore the question of representation in an architecture archive. Through its combination of curatorial perspectives with archival material, the book reveals just as much about the work of a new generation of architects as it does about the work of Ábalos&Herreros.
