  • Abalos and Herreros address an audience at Tate Modern

Abalos & Herreros is one of the leading practices on Spain’s dynamic contemporary architecture scene. Rubbish was rarely the domain of cultured architects until the pair made their name designing the Valdemingomez recycling plant outside Madrid. As leading tutors at the Architecture School of Madrid, they have also maintained a name for themselves as architectural theorists.

At their first time addressing a British audience, Abalos & Herreros’ discussed the Woermann Tower in Las Palmas: a residential tower with a Spanish touch of vivid colours and organic design that has successfully connected the old and new parts of the city and has won favour with residents and critics alike.
