He currently develops critical edition on the works of Cedric Price, along with an investigation entitled ‘Prácticas emergentes en Arquitectura’ (Emergent Practices in Architecture) based on the idea of recycling the figure of the architect and his design techniques, bearing the name of the Research Group which he leads at the Polytechnic University of Madrid. In 1984 he founded Ábalos&Herreros; in 1999, the LMI (Liga Multimedia Internacional); in 2006, Herreros Arquitectos and in 2014, estudio Herreros.
The Herreros Arquitectos years witnessed the take-off Juan Herreros’s international activity. During this period, the office won a series of notorious international competitions -the design and construction of the Munch Museum plus its adjacent area in Oslo, the International Conference Centre in Bogotá, the design for the Transport Hub at Santiago de Compostela, the Euromed Project in Marseille, the ANFA District in Casablanca or the Castilla y Leon Technology Dome in Zamora- while building his first projects outside Spain -the Panama Bank Tower, the Coastal Parks in Panama City, the access facilities to the city of Colon or the Communication Hut in Gwangju, in South Korea – and carrying out other major projects in Spain, all of which have been featured in several publications and exhibitions, deserving a wide range of awards. Throughout this period, Juan Herreros has insistently implemented his ideas on global practice and the incorporation of interdisciplinarity and talent to both the theoretical and the professional realms of architecture, resulting –in 2014- in the office refoundation under the name estudio Herreros, a partnership structure appointing the German architect Jens Richter as its first associated architect, in recognition of his years of collaboration and commitment to the office.
Juan Herreros is an International Fellow of the RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects); he has been awarded the Architectural Digest prize, the Medal of Arts from the city of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, named ‘Architect of the World’ by the Architects’ Association of the city of Lima and adoptive son of the city of Cochabamba, and has been nominated to the U.S. Academy of Arts and Letters Architecture Medal.
