HiLo is a research & innovation unit for the EMPA NEST featuring research and prototype systems of ultra-lightweight construction and smart and adaptive building systems. The HiLo is planned as an innovative office space within the NEST. It is currently under construction and expected to be complete in 2020.

The HiLo features research on lightweight construction and optimised structures undertaken within the NCCR Digital Fabrication. This demonstrator is a collaboration between the Block Research Group and the Chair of Architecture & Building Systems at ETH Zurich together with ROK Architects and Dr. Schwartz Consulting.
