Dr. Ana Anton

Ana Anton is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the chair for Digital Building Technologies, Institute of Technology in Architecture at the Department of Architecture, ETH Zurich and associated to the National Centre for Competence in Research – Digital Fabrication, where she leads the research in 3D concrete printing.

She received her doctorate from ETH Zürich in 2022 and her architectural degree, cum laude, in the TU Delft, in 2014. While her scientific research addresses complexity and emergence in architecture, her designs exploit materiality encoded for digital fabrication. Her Doctoral 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.
