DFAB HOUSE may have opened and now be an occupied house, but that doesn’t mean that the project is over. Far from it. In fact, the house is now in the first phase of longitudinal studies to see just how well digitally fabricated objects hold up. Initial results are in, and they show that actually,…
Robotic Embankment Prototype
ROBOTIC EMBANKMENT PROTOTYPE, Summer 2020, ETH Zurich.Free-form autonomous formation in terrain with HEAP.This experiment with HEAP (Hydraulic Excavator for Autonomous Purposes) demonstrates our latest research in on-site and mobile digital fabrication with found materials. The embankment prototype…

The RILEM Digital Concrete conference that was first inaugurated by NCCR Digital Fabrication in 2018, has just completed its second edition, this time hosted remotely by TU Eindhoven.
Digital Concrete: Keynote Robert Flatt and Lex Reiter
Demonstrating the latest advances in robotic timber construction and digital concrete, Future Tree combines state-of-the-art design techniques, material science and robotic fabrication. The structure, completed in the end of 2019, is located in Esslingen, Switzerland and stretches over the courtyard…
In June interested NCCR researchers participated in a workshop examining the current approaches to interdisciplinary collaboration within different NCCR research Streams.
In June interested NCCR researchers participated in a workshop on Socio-Economic Impact of Digital Fabrication, aimed to help members from all levels of the NCCR to asses the social and economic implications of their work and to develop a use case for their technology.
