About the Author

Fabio Gramazio and Matthias Kohler are architects with multi-disciplinary interests, ranging from computational design and robotic fabrication to material innovation. In 2000, they founded the architectural office Gramazio & Kohler in Zurich, where numerous award-winning designs have been realized, integrating novel architectural design into a contemporary building culture. Trained at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology ETH Zurich, their integral approach to practice and research focuses on the interplay of digital design and material processes through advanced construction methodologies. Since 2005, Gramazio & Kohler have held the Chair for Architecture and Digital Fabrication at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology ETH Zurich, where they have founded the world's first architectural robotic laboratory. The pioneering investigations concentrate on non-standardised architectural design and additive fabrication processes through the customised use of industrial robots.
