e+i Studio is a dynamic architecture and design practice based in New York City. Founded in 2007 by partners Eva Perez de Vega and Ian Gordon it engages in projects of all varied scales, from public projects that engage the city and the environment, to residential renovations, to exhibit, set and product design.
Informed by our background in movement related practices we approach architecture as an interdisciplinary practice that emerges from the exploration of the performance of matter and bodies in space. For us, architecture is a material manifestation of choreographed space. In other words, we seek to propose solutions that engage performative movement-based expression and architectural spatial constructs into proposals that are not fixed in time, but can evolve through performance and use.
The work of e+i has been supported and awarded by the New York Foundation For the Arts, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, the Manhattan Council Art Fund, Architecture For Humanity and Emerging New York Architects, among others. It has been exhibited in New York at the AIA Center for Architecture, Van Alen Institute, Max Protech, RIVAA art gallery, Parsons New School For Design, as well as internationally at the Milan design fair, Venice, Rome, Madrid, Stockholm and Seoul.
e+i is licensed to practice architecture in New York State and in Spain.

Was the introduction to Rhino / Grasshopper that I was looking for. It's a dense three days and I definitely wasn't able to absorb everything, but Ian did a nice job of going in-depth when someone in the class had questions and briefly touched on other, more straightforward points when needed in order to give as complete an overview as possible in the short time available. Ian provided demo files that were really helpful, including many extras that we weren't able to cover. He also provided resources from the makers of Rhino / Grasshopper and mentioned additional supplements that I've found helpful. I now have enough of a grasp of the Rhino / Grasshopper workflow that when I get stuck, I'm able to effectively Google questions and look through the Help docs, whereas before, I wouldn't know how to ask a question about what I wanted to accomplish, because my understanding was so limited. While it's not possible to really learn a new program in three days, Ian's foundation taught me how to approach modeling / designing using Rhino and cleared the beginning hurdles that I was getting caught up in when trying to learn myself. It was very helpful to have his guidance and it's a lot easier to grasp something new when you're able to ask questions and get "insider" shortcuts from someone who has the experience Ian does.
Ian was a wonderful instructor- very knowledgable and patient.
Class was very good and structured well for beginners.
Excellent class with good materials to go back to. I highly recommend it for people with prior knowledge of Rhino.
I can’t say enough good things about Ian, but I will give a few. He’s very knowledgeable, explains the topics very well, is prepared for the classes well and was also good at adjusting to the needs of the students, and just a great guy. I highly recommend taking this class or whatever other class Ian offers that interests you.
Extremely efficient class. Perfectly callibrated for Architects. Definitely recommend.
Fantastic class Ian is an amazing instructor learned so much!!!!
The class was definitely what I was looking for and learned a lot from the teacher. I loved the fact that class was very small at 6 and not overwhelming. Instructor was very detailed and easy to learn from. As a beginner of the software, after the class I felt I can definitely start using the program right away. I highly recommend to those who’s willing to learn.
Great teacher. Thorough and patient.
Ian is a great teacher. Very patient and a good at explaining things slowly.
