New paradigms of the automatic

Jan Willmann

,

Jan Willmann is Senior Research Assistant at the Chair of Architecture and Digital Fabrication at ETH Zürich. He studied architecture in Liechtenstein, Oxford and Innsbruck where he received his PhD degree in 2010. Previously, from 2007 to 2010, he was a research assistant and lecturer at the Chair of Architectural Theory of Professor Ir. Bart Lootsma and gained professional experience in numerous architectural offices as an architect and consultant. He co-founded the platform Architekturtheorie.eu and participated in a number of international research and exhibition projects His research focuses on digital architecture and its theoretical implications as a composed computational and material score. As such, he has lectured internationally at various universities and published extensively, including The Robotic Touch – How Robots Change Architecture (2014), the first anthology of robots in architecture. Author affiliation details are correct at time of print publication.

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).
