Éric Alonzo

Éric Alonzo, architect and doctor of architecture, is a professor at the École d'architecture de la ville & des territoires (Éav&t) Paris-Est, Université Gustave Eiffel, where he directs, with Pierre Alain Trévelo (TVK), the postgraduate course in architecture, urbanism and landscape architecture (DSA d'architecte-urbaniste). He is also director of the Observatory of the Suburban Condition (OCS/AUSser, UMR 3329 of the CNRS), a research group created in 2011 with Sébastien Marot, where they founded the publication "Marnes, documents d' architecture".

After publishing a work on the genealogy of the rotunda (Du rond-point au giratoire, Parenthèses, 2005), he defended his thesis "L' Architecture de la voie. Histoire et théorie" (The Architecture of the Road. History and Theory), which was awarded the first Manuel de Solà-Morales European Prize in 2017, for the best thesis in urban planning in Europe. The resulting work (Éav&t/Parenthèses, 2018) received the mention of the René Pechère/CIVA Literary Award (Brussels) in 2020 as a French book on the art of gardens and landscape.

As an extension of his work on the history of the architectural design of infrastructures, his research currently focuses on the historiography of the "urban project" and on architecture as an "ante-discipline" (common knowledge base for urban planning) and its links with geography.

He also teaches at the École des Ponts et chaussées and at the École nationale des travaux publics de l'État. He is also an associate member of the Paris Region Environment Agency (MRAe Île-de-France) since 2020.
