e-Architects = eiroa Architects is a design laboratory studio; eiroa (celtic galician:"from the ground").

e-Architects is based in New York City's Silicon Alley (Flat Iron District), and also located in The Hamptons NY, and Buenos Aires.

e-Architects | eiroa Architects P.C. is a professional corporation in New York. Its New York office is located in New York City's Silicon Alley (Flat Iron District, Madison Square, Gramercy) with international collaborators in Canada (Toronto), Spain (Barcelona, Coruna), Argentina (Buenos Aires), and Uruguay (East Uruguay); e-Architects includes architects who are licensed to practice in New York State; Canada (Ontario); Argentina (Buenos Aires). e-Architects capabilities ranges from architecture design to research and development of cultural and technological driven projects based on Computer Science and Data Science. e-Architects aims at integrate advanced science and technology, theoretical speculation and experimental practice expanding the boundaries of architecture.

e-Architects Education Practice aims to expand academic research into built academic spaces throughn integrated collaborative interdisciplinary edication - including programming, colaborative learning spaces, buildings, campus research clusters, campuses and new campus typologies.

e-Architects defines an architecture of architectures within an architecture of information. 

e-Architects projects range from the digital to the physical, from designing and representing information systems to designing space-environments.  e-Architects' expertise range from architecture to design, from urbanism to ecological systems, from the landscape of the city to the architecture of the landscape, including experimentation with information systems that define smart cities and innovation in digital fabrication.

e-Architects reserch and development develops software, information "mapping" and "visualizations", surveys, including machines to "draw" and machines to "build", therefore displacing and expanding the systems and parameters that define architecture. These issues are informed by cutting edge custom technology, including Big Data Survey 3d scanning, API, multidimensional parallel and correlational processing, blockchain technologies, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Neural Networks, Machine Learning, Big Data, algorithms, virutal robots, simulations, mathematics, virtual environments, "visualizations". Information actualizations become active through phyiscal computation, robotics, robotic fabricqation and materials. e-Architects continuously expands these categories and disciplinary boundaries in each project. Digital fabrication is thought as an informed actualization developing unique project-specific robotics, robotic fabrication machines, and materials.

Operatively, e-Architects combines the qualities of a small focused team with an international network of recognized experts from architecture, landscape, engineering, mathematics, computer science, ecology, digital fabrication, and multiple design fields. This studio offers cutting edge expertise in the design and fabrication of mind bending spaces that challenge cognition.

The e-Architects' team has been involved in  the proposal, competitions, research and designs in South America, the US / U.S.A. (New York City-Southampton), Europe-Spain (Barcelona-Galicia); Argentina (Buenos Aires), and the internet. In New York and Buenos Aires this studio has designed, published and exhibited many projects, including: an infrastructure project with the Department of Transportation in NYC, projects for the World Trade Center in New York City, exhibitions in museums and installations and many residential houses.  

The e-Architect's team have been featured in different media. e-Architect's principals and collaborators have published widely on architecture and urban matters, organized conferences and won many competitions and prizes. Meredith Bostwick-Lorenzo Eiroa has been published in main media, including Sense Publishers, Building Design & Construction, and several Medium articles. Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa has been published in RTVG, ARQ Clarin, La Nacion Newspaper, Architecture In Formation, eVolo's Paradigms in Computing, PLOT, Pidgin, Systema Journal, Next Generation Building.Lorenzo-Eiroa's design proposal for the World Trade Center was part of the “Think Big: The Mater’s Plan”, a research group organized by the New York Times Magazine, which included world renowned architects and urbanistsHis Manifesto was part of FreshLatino at The Storefront for Art and Architecture; his environmental machine for soft landscapes was exhibited at the Disenny Hub Barcelona. Lorenzo-Eiroa's ideas were presented at Pecha Kucha New York #11, as part of a series of events for the Festival of Ideas for the New City curated by the New Museum of New York City. Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa's designs have been exhibited, among others at the MoMA and the VIII, XIX, XIV, XVI, XVII, XVIII Venice International Architecture Biennale, including a National Pavilion representation for Argentina (La Biennale Di Venezia, Archittetura is the largest architecture exhibition in the world celebrated every two years in Venice, Italy). Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa has several book publications, book chapters contributions, and academic and professional articles publications as authors, editors and contributors.

Design Philosophy

e-Architect's design philosophy is to question the parameters that become referential in an architecture of information. By displacing spatial typologies through topology, this studio develops innovative spatial constructions that critique the structures that prescribe a project. Likewise, this studio also displaces the media and information technology interfaces that structure origination in a project through representation. By these means this studio relates deeper conceptual structures with visual and experiential affection. These methods are also expanded into the architecture of the landscape with operations that work with natural and artificial environments. The studio works with ecology understanding architecture as space-environment, whether real or virtual.

By these means these projects intend to develop an advancement in the critique of stable/homogenous organizational structures, which constitute the fundamentals of modern thinking, and also a critique of relative instability/differentiation that such definitions of typology-topology. 

Challenging the point of departure of the matrices and systems where architecture processes originate, enables the studio's designs to develop a consistent but flexible modus-operandi that resolves the relationship between professional demands and the recognition of the qualities of a place, avoiding stylistic determination with artistic quality. The strategies that have been dominating architecture, such as modularity, repetition, or homogeneity, are displaced with formal solutions that challenge current avant-gardes but also recognize previous historical attempts. This delivers unique spatial and formal solutions that recognize an autonomy based on processes that constitute form, and an innovative aesthetic language that is striated by media-based information technology that acknowledges the subject and his psycho-somatic experience. 

Through these strategies this studio aims to develop a critical body of work in relation to the contemporary state of expansion of architecture, and the role of media-interfaces that have been prescribing recent avant-gardes.
