e-Architect's design philosophy is to question the parameters that become referential in architecture in the definition of 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 through Big Data. The studio works with ecology understanding architecture as space-environment, whether real or virtual.

e-Architects' philosophy is to constantly question assumed cultural structures with conceptual designs that focus on recognizing, and criticizing, the most stable spatial organizations and media interfaces that structure origination in a project. Through processes of recognition/critique/displacement, projects develop relationships between a conceptual approach, complex formal investigations, the latency involved in the specificity of a place, and the media based information technologies that displace the subject from his/hers spatial experience. By working and displacing spatial, representational, cognitive and information structures, these projects enable consistent formal difference, and challenge the origin of types through topology.

The studio's projects aim to propose a new structuralist avant-garde revisiting contemporary  poststructuralist theories. Displacement strategies are informed by multiple definitions of topology: topology as formal bi-continuous differentiation, topology as relative displacement and topology as topo-logos or the logic of the place. 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 topology present. The construction of a continuity between referential structures and topological displacement is intended to suspend the current historical dialectical pendulum movement that has been dominating architecture since the establishment of the Renaissance and the Baroque.

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 with conceptual clarity the relationship between professional demands and the recognition of the qualities of a place, confronting stylistic predetermination with a sophisticated 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. 

These methods are also expanded into the architecture of the landscape with operations that work with environmental forces through big data. The studio works with ecology as a means to challenge topologically the relationship between architecture and the environment, expanding the definition of space as space-environment

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.
