One decade of Gramazio Kohler Research at ETH Zurich – The Architecture of Digital Fabrication

January 4, 2016By Alessandro CarabiniDigital Manufacturing No Comments

In 2005, the group of Gramazio Kohler Research built the world’s first robotic laboratory to explore the intersections between architecture and robotics. This endeavour has been formative for the discipline, setting precedence and de facto creating a new research field merging interests in computational design, material innovation and automated fabrication. Now, ten years later, the … Read More
