Additive robotic fabrication of complex timber structures

Volker Helm

,

Volker Helm specialised in computer aided architectural design at ETH Zürich after successfully completing his studies in architecture at the University of Siegen (Germany). He subsequently worked for six years at the Herzog & de Meuron architectural office in Basel, specialising in the development, programming and realisation of complex geometries. Since 2010, Volker Helm has been working with Professor Fabio Gramazio and Professor Matthias Kohler as a research associate at ETH Zürich. Since 2013 he has been responsible for coordinating the research of the group. In 2015, he completed his doctoral degree which focuses on potentials of on-site robotic construction, under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Georg Trogemann (Academy of Media Arts in Cologne) and Prof. Matthias Kohler (Chair of Architecture and Digital Fabrication at ETH Zürich).
