>ABIBOO's meaning

Combining Latin and Japanese terms, ABIBOO is a neologism meaning “the origin of creativity.” AB- derives from the Latin term ab initio, which means “from the beginning,” and -IBOO derives from the Japanese 伊部, which means “one who is creative.”

Like its name, ABIBOO Studio sprouts from both Latin and Japanese roots. The firm was founded in 2010 by Alfredo Munoz, who was born into the Latin culture of Spain and developed his approach to design while living and working in Japan. Prior to founding ABIBOO, Alfredo Munoz lived in Europe, the Middle East, India, Japan, and the US, working for some of the most acclaimed architects and architectural firms of the last half of the 20th century, including Toyo Ito, Skidmore-Owings-Merrill (SOM), Ábalos & Herreros, and Alberto Campo Baeza. He has also served as visiting professor at European University and as guest lecturer at Columbia University, the University of Pennsylvania, Pescara University, the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, and Tongji University in Shanghai, among others.

>Social Commitment

At ABIBOO Studio, we believe in creating better habitats through the restorative power of design and generosity. Approximately 10% of our human and financial resources are dedicated to social commitment projects around the world.

Design has an enormous capacity to improve the quality of people’s lives. The designs that shape our built environments deeply affect our minds, bodies, and souls, providing the material frameworks for almost all of our daily activities and interactions. Through socially attentive, sustainable, and innovative design, then, we can make significant contributions to societal wellbeing.

At ABIBOO, we support fundamental human rights, strive for sustainability, and education.

Areas of particular interest at ABIBOO Studio as part of our social commitment are:

1. Logistical, financial, personnel, and know-how support for safe infrastructure development in case of emergency situations.

2. Logistical, financial, personnel, and know-how support for the sustainable development of emerging countries.

3. Logistical, personnel, and know-how support for promoting the educational and spatial development of children up to the age of 15.

4. Logistical, personnel, and know-how support for fostering the global exchange of knowledge and for promoting the best practices in artistic, cultural, and anthropological education in a globalized world.
