Last week, the studio’s Head of Geometry and Computational Design Pablo Zamorano and Associate Architect Kyriakos Chatziparaskevas gave a joint presentation as part of a lecture series for ETH Zurich’s Masters of Advanced Studies in Architecture and Digital Fabrication (MASDFAB). Their focus was on concrete and skins, and the digital aspects of contemporary design and fabrication.
The lecture supports the course’s Design and Integrated Building Project, where students together with researchers explore the potential of novel digital fabrication processes to implement a full-scale construction project. The topic will build upon the ongoing research project Ice Concrete to explore the potential of novel digital fabrication processes based on the ice formwork method. The objective of the course is to study, design, and fabricate a full-scale demonstrator of a modular spatial concrete lattice.
ETH Zurich is a leading university for science and technology founded in 1855 as a centre of innovation and knowledge.
