His work has explored since the organizational principles of skyscrapers as a generator of generic multifunctional typologies. They were also pioneers in the use of diagrams and abstract information as display mechanism of non-evident relationships. In 2008 the firm Ábalos & Herreros, began to perform as two different platforms differentiating projects signed by Juan Herreros of those under the authorship of Ábalos. Herreros presented two projects at that time as the beginning of a new stage: A house on the island of Mallorca and architectural design of the art fair ARCO in Madrid; in which he applied urban criteria for space allocation and management of program uses.

His theoretical work currently focuses on his work and seminars on “Emerging Practices in Architecture” which takes its name from the Research Group directed at the Polytechnic University of Madrid based on the idea of recycling the figure of the architect and his techniques in light of new economic coordinates and the crisis of traditional modes of production which hinder the incorporation of new generations to the practice of architecture techniques.

自從摩天大樓的組織原則作為通用多功能類型的生成器以來,他的工作一直在探索。他們也是使用圖表和抽象信息作為非顯而易見關係的顯示機制的先驅。 2008年,Ábalos&Herreros公司開始扮演兩個不同的平台,區分Juan Herreros簽署的Ábalos作者的項目。 Herreros當時提出了兩個項目,作為新階段的開始:馬略卡島上的一所房子和馬德里ARCO藝術博覽會的建築設計;他在其中應用了城市標準,用於空間分配和項目使用管理。 2008年,他與IñakiAbalos休息後創立了Herreros Arquitectos,直到2014年,他以estudio Herreros的名義完成了他們的實踐重建,從中扮演三重角色:從業者,教師和研究員。
