Out of the Box balos and Herreros

I�aki �balos and Juan Herreros established their office in Madrid in 1984, working together until 2006. I�aki �balos is since 2006 a partner with �balos+Sentkiewicz, based in Madrid and Cambridge (MA) and a Professor in Residence (since 2012) and Chair of the Department of Architecture (since 2013) at Harvard Graduate School of Design. Juan Herreros founded Estudio Herreros (formerly Herreros Arquitectos) in 2006 and Chair Professor of Architectural Design at Madrid School of Architecture and a Full Professor at Columbia University''s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation in New York. In Madrid during the 1980s and 1990s, in a period of transformation following the end of the Franco regime, architects were still valued for their technical ability and for their capacity to redefine the built environment. In this context, �balos & Herreros were remarkable for their different response to these assumptions: they deliberately established a permanent coexistence of theoretical research and professional work. This activity overlapped with their teaching at ETSAM (Escuela T�cnica Superior de Arquitectura de Madrid), as well as with their publications and curatorial work. Notable examples include the 1992 publication T�cnica y arquitectura en la ciudad contempor�nea, 1950-1990 (translated into English in 2003 as Tower and Office) and the 2000 exhibition on Cedric Price, An Architecture of calculated uncertainty. Many ideas were developed in more than twenty years of the office. �balos & Herreros''s way of working was based on conversation: conversation between the architects themselves, with collaborators in the office, with artists involved in their projects, and with other architects through their teaching and writing. The many essays by �balos & Herreros on other architects'' works clearly explain and reconstruct their way of thinking. In their practice the project is developed through research, which implies finding the right tools, appropriating past experiences and defining new methods. This approach explains �balos & Herreros''s interest in drawing from existing systems and arriving at a built form through minimal effort. Many architects and critics have observed, studied and commented on the work of �balos & Herreros while the firm was active, but these reading were mainly based on their built work and their ongoing research activities. The arrival of the archive at the CCA presents a new opportunity for observation and discovery based on materials related to process rather than to the final built projects. The CCA acquired the �balos & Herreros archive along with several others that relate to contemporary architecture practice, most recently the archives of Foreign Office Architects (FOA) and of �lvaro Siza. I�aki �balos and Juan Herreros donated the archive of �balos & Herreros to the CCA in Montreal in 2012. It comprises some 250 projects dating from 1985-2008, mainly in the forms of sketches, drawings in both print and digital form, collages, related textual documents, slides and models. As always, an architectural archive is a fundamental repository of the architects'' ideas, a crucial instrument for revealing their way of thinking and their process towards design. In the case of �balos & Herreros specifically, the archive holdings vividly illustrate their professional work--built projects as well as unrealized ideas for competitions-- along with their research, writing, curating and teaching. What is not present in the archive also hints at their way of working: for example the absence of study models shows that �balos & Herreros did not privilege this medium--in their opinion time-consuming and of little help in their thinking process--and favoured collages instead. The CCA''s intention is to activate acquisitions upon their arrival by immediately initiating a process of research and investigation, foreseeing a unique opportunity to exhibit this unseen material to the public while taking an active part in the contemporary debate on architecture. To continue and develop this approach with the �balos & Herreros archive, the CCA has conceived a new program that will strengthen the connection between archival material, research and public presentation of the Collection. The program consists of a Research Residency, for which individual scholars and collectives are invited to study and interpret the work in the CCA archives. The recipients are selected in accordance with their connection to the archive''s content and the relevance of their experience and expertise. The selected researchers and curators--OFFICE Kersten Geers David Van Severen (Brussels), Juan Jos� Castell�n (Zurich) and Florian Idenburg and Jing Liu of SO-IL (New York)--were invited for residencies of two weeks between October and November 2014, designed as focused immersions in the �balos & Herreros archive. Each group has determined a precise line of investigation and has articulated a way of reading the archive and the architects'' work. They all dig in the archive, each one with a precise set of questions in mind. OFFICE Kersten Geers David Van Severen, who studied under �balos & Herreros in Madrid, investigate the architects'' fascination with an industrial approach to architecture. Castell�n, who worked with �balos & Herreros between 2003 and 2007, is interested in their capacity to construct a hybrid materiality while avoiding any manifestation of the building technology as a language. SO-IL, who share many academic endeavors with �balos & Herreros, are interested in their approach to inhabiting an urban or rural site and their visions for new landscapes. These critical arguments, paths of investigation and opposing points of view have generated a series of seminars and discussions and also three "out of the box" exhibitions at CCA between March and September 2015. This new book presents three contemporary encounters with the �balos & Herreros archive at the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA). The architects OFFICE Kersten Geers David Van Severen, Juan Jos� Castell�n and SO - IL conducted research into the archive and developed specific readings of the material, which they articulated through exhibitions and public presentations. This book reframes these three research projects: it shows archival material as it was taken out of the box and reinterpreted, while nevertheless representing the continuity of the archive. Texts consist of elaborations on the research, exhibitions and presentations and give voice to the three curators as well as to I�aki �balos and Juan Herreros themselves. Illustrations of the archival material appear throughout the book, and a series of photographs by Stefano Graziani provides a complementary perspective by exploring the question of representation in an architecture archive. Through its combination of curatorial perspectives with illustrations of archival material, the book reveals just as much about the work and the interests of a new generation of architects as it does about the work of �balos & Herreros.

Iñaki Ábalos and Juan Herreros established the renowned architec-tural firm Ábalos & Herreros in Madrid in 1984. At the time, fol-lowing the end of the Franco regime, architects were valued more for their technical ability than for their contributions to theoretical research. In this context, Ábalos and Herreros's melding of design with a range of publications and curatorial projects presented a remarkable challenge to assumptions about the role of an architect. In 2012, the Canadian Centre for Architecture obtained the Ábalos & Herreros archive, which contains documents related to more than 160 projects. The material comprises sketches, slides, models, col-lages, and drawings. The archive presents a compelling opportunity to reconstruct Ábalos and Herreros's planning and design process. Each of the book's three contributors--two of whom worked with Ábalos and Herreros--approaches the archive with specific questions, and their essays explore topics including the architects' fascination with industrial architecture, their capacity to construct a hybrid materiality without recourse to building technology as language, and their innova-tive visions for landscape architecture. While many have written about the work of Ábalos and Herreros, previous books have been based mainly on their built projects and on-going research. Ábalos & Herreros Selected by Office Kersten Geers David Van Severen, Juan José Castellón and SO-IL is the first book to draw on the firm's archive to offer a new take on this important architectural practice.

What role can history play in contemporary architecture practice?Rather than adopting a postmodern attitude or evoking past discussions and historical architectural forms, Go Hasegawa, Kersten Geers, and David Van Severen address contemporary issues in their work while remaining in dialogue with history.Even with distinct pasts and contexts, affinities emerge in shared concerns and approaches. In their conversations, history becomes a tool that can be used in production, rather than just an object of study.This book features newly produced plans, sections, models, and perspectives for projects by Go Hasegawa and OFFICE Kersten Geers David Van Severen, juxtaposed with reference material chosen from the CCA Collection. Introduced and annotated by the architects, these images form a visual manifesto for a unique relationship to history.Published after the exhibition, Besides, History: Go Hasegawa, Kersten Geers, David Van Severen at Canadian Centre for Architecture, Montreal (10 May - 15 October 2017).

During the past fifty years, documentary photography and architecture have become increasingly interdependent, blurring the disciplinary boundary between the two. Seamless looks at the work of a new generation of European photographers and architects working together to produce images of architecture made from fragments of reality. At the same time, it investigates how shared digital technologies influence the creation of architecture and its photographic representation through images. Based on a series of interviews, Seamless discusses the collaborations between Filip Dujardin and Jan De Vylder, Philipp Schaerer and Roger Boltshauser, and Bas Princen and OFFICE Kersten Geers David van Severen. Each of the three sections is illustrated with a series in images that form parallel narratives within the book. In the concluding essay, architect Jesús Vassallo pulls together the treads of the conversations to investigate questions about the impact of digital technology on the value assigned to images, how shared technological platforms enhance the influence photographers and architects have on each other, and why they have often chosen to focus on the dirty realism of the urban spaces.

Re Imagining the Avant Garde

The 1960s and 1970s avant-garde has been likened to an ‘architectural Big Bang’, such was the intensity of energy and ambition in which it exploded into the postwar world. Marked out by architectural projects that redefined the discipline, it remains just as influential today. References to the likes of Archizoom, Peter Eisenman, John Hejduk and Superstudio abound. Highly diverse, the avant-garde cannot be defined as a single strand or tendency. It was divergent geographically – reaching from Europe to North America and Japan – and in its political, formal and cultural preoccupations. It was unified, though, as a critical and experimental force, critiquing contemporary society against the backdrop of extreme social and political upheaval: the Paris riots of May 1968, the anti-Vietnam war movement in America and the looming ecological crisis. Re-imagining the Avant-garde outlines how in contemporary architectural practice, avant-garde projects retain their power as historical precedents, as barometers of a particular design ethos, as critiques of society and instigators of new formal techniques. Given the far-reaching impact of the subsequent digital revolution, which has since reshaped every aspect of practice, the issue asks why this historical period continues to retain its undeniable grip on current architecture.
