Digital Materiality in Architecture. Por Gramazio and Kohler.

Digital Materiality in Architecture outlines the theoretical context for the full synthesis between digital and material processes in architectural design and fabrication. Projects and research from the architecture firm Gramazio & Kohler as well from their department at the Faculty of Architecture of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) illustrate the pervasive effect on the architectural physis that lies in Digital Materiality – the digital enrichment of material elements and processes.

About the editors:
Fabio Gramazio and Matthias Kohler are partners in the Zurich architecture and urbanism practice Gramazio & Kohler. The office’s projects include the Gantenbein winery façade, the Tanzhaus theatre for contemporary dance, the Christmas lights for the Bahnhofstrasse in Zurich and the sWISH* Pavilion at the Swiss National Exposition Expo.02. Gramazio & Kohler’s contributions to exhibitions include Structural Oscillations, a structure built on-site by the transportable robotic unit, R-O-B, at the 2008 Architectural Biennial in Venice.
Together, Gramazio and Kohler hold the Chair for Architecture and Digital Fabrication DFAB at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH). Their research focuses on the exploration of highly informed architectural elements and processes and produces design strategies for full-scale automated fabrication by the department’s robotic construction facility.
