He currently teaches theory of architecture and design at the Catholic University in Santiago, investigating the design of industrial ecologies constrained by extreme weather conditions and scarce energy resources in the Atacama Desert.


Between 2006 and 2009 he worked at Arup Urban Design in London on a number of projects in Russia, Azerbaijan, China and Saudi Arabia. Alonso has been awarded with a Research Grant from The Getty Research Institute, Los Angeles, California (2010), and with a Fellowship as Visiting Scholar at the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA) in Montreal (2011).
