The series documents Ábalos&Herreros' activities related to exhibitions, publications, teaching and conferences, as well as awards and juries.

The work of Ábalos&Herreros has been featured in several exhibitions and the architects also curated several exhbitions of their own work. Subseries AP164.S2.SS1 contains materials related to exhibitions curated by the firm and by other curators. Also documented in this subseries are publications by the firm and the firm's publishing house Liga Multimedia Internaciónal.
