The story in brief
The partners of e+i have a long history that started many years ago in Rome, Italy.
Eva, a native of Rome with British-Spanish nationality and Ian a native of the Philippines with American-French background, met while in high school in Italy. Spending most weekends sketching in piazza’s and churches these early years had a deep impact on both partners and helped to forge a shared passion for design and architecture that Eva and Ian bring to every project the joint practice undertakes. e+i not only stands for the first names of the partners but was originally intended to address the reach of the practice interested in notions of exteriority and interiority.

She holds a Masters and Bachelors degree in Architecture and Civil Engineering from the University of Madrid, School of Advanced Architecture (ETSAM), a Masters in Philosophy from the New School For Social Research, and currently in the PhD in Philosophy program.
