In 1911 he graduated from the Odessa Art School, worked in St. Petersburg as an assistant to the architect A. I. Tamanyan and his brother D. Iofan, after which he left to study at the Rome Institute of Fine Arts, to the architect Armando Brazini (1916). At the invitation of A. I. Rykov, in 1924 he returned to Russia. Iofan's first major work was the government sanatorium in Barvikha (1929). In the period from 1927 to 1931, Iofan designs and supervises the construction of a residential complex on Serafimovich Street (the house of the All-Russian Central Executive Committee and the Council of People's Commissars of the USSR) in Moscow - the so-called “Houses on the Embankment”. Iofan owns projects of the USSR pavilions at the World Exhibitions in Paris (1937) - served as a pedestal for the sculpture "Worker and Collective Farm Woman" by Vera Mukhina, - and in New York (1939) - served as a pedestal for the sculpture "Worker and Star" by Vyacheslav Andreev. Iofan is the author of the project of the Baumanskaya metro station (1944) in Moscow. In the postwar years, Iofan created the complexes of the Oil and Mining Institutes in Moscow (1947-1950), a project of the Central Institute of Physical Culture in Izmailovo, and supervised the development of large residential areas in Izmailovo and Maryina Roshcha.
