Ana Anton

Ana Anton is an architect (MSc.) specialised in computational design and robotic fabrication.
She received her architectural degree, cum laude, in the TU Delft, in 2014. Prior to joining ETH Zürich, she was associated to the Hyperbody Research Group in TU Delft. While her scientific research addresses complexity and emergence in architecture, her designs exploit materiality encoded for digital fabrication. Her current thesis, Tectonics of Concrete Printed Architecture, focuses on robotic concrete extrusion processes for large scale building components.

Work Topic

The context of digital fabrication with concrete allows architects to reinvestigate material, process and design in order to explore novel expression in architecture. As an approach to no-formwork construction, concrete extrusion 3D printing is ideal for complex shapes that would be impossible to produce with any other available technique.
