Fabio Gramazio

Fabio Gramazio is an architect with multi-disciplinary interests ranging from computational design and robotic fabrication to material innovation. In 2000, he founded the architecture practice Gramazio Kohler Architects in conjunction with his partner Matthias Kohler, where numerous award-wining designs have been realised. Opening also the world’s first architectural robotic laboratory at ETH Zürich, Fabio Gramazio’s and Matthias Kohler’s research has been formative in the field of digital architecture, setting precedence and de facto creating a new research field, merging advanced architectural design and additive fabrication processes through the customised use of industrial robots. This ranges from 1:1 prototype installations to the design of robotically fabricated high-rises. His work has been published in many journals, books and media, and was first documented in the book Digital Materiality in Architecture (2008). Author affiliation details are correct at time of print publication.
