Lecture: Matthias Kohler

The Robotic Touch – How Robots Change Architecture

Matthias Kohler (born in 1968) is professor of Architecture and Digital Fabrication at ETH Zurich and founder of the architecture practice Gramazio & Kohler. Together with Fabio Gramazio, he has realized numerous award-wining designs and their office is responsible for the design of the NEST research platform, a future living and working laboratory for sustainable building construction.

Opening the world’s first architectural robotic laboratory at ETH Zurich, Matthias’ research at the intersections between architecture and robotics has been formative for the field of digital architecture, setting precedence and de facto creating a new research field merging interests in computational design, robot control and fabrication, and material innovation.
