Alfonso is an architect leading BIM implementation at the award-winning, London-based multi-discipline Heatherwick Studio. Having worked as Project Architect and Head of Design in a leading practice in Chile, Alfonso decided to move to a more technical role after observing how technology skills, or the lack of them, influence and limit design creativity, and affect project outcome. With experience working internationally in Spain, India, Chile and UK, Alfonso started collaborating with Heatherwick studio in 2015 as a BIM Consultant, and then moved to Woods Bagot (London) to work as Design Technology Manager. In 2018 he re-joined Heatherwick Studio to continue BIM implementation. His goal is to embed BIM in the design phase without limiting or hindering the design process.
