Abalos & Herreros is an architectural firm founded by Inaki Abalos (b. 1956) and Juan Herreros (b. 1958) in Madrid, Spain. The founders were involved in the last throes[clarification needed] of La Movida Madrileña and later produced a 1997 monograph called Areas of Impunity.[1] They are known for their playful writing and an interest in industrial methods of building.[1] The office split into two Madrid-based offices in 2008. Immediately Juan Herreros' office won a number of important international open competitions, with the new Munch Museum in Oslo being the most important of them.
