Prof. Dr. Ena Lloret-Fritschi

Ena Lloret-Fritschi is an architect with an interest in shaping concrete without the need for traditional formwork. She is the Professor of Fabrication & Material Aware Architecture at the Università della Svizzera Italiana (USI). In this role she will continue to bridge the domains of architecture and digital fabrication and material science in cementitious materials. Her work is embedded as research on mouldless shaping with concrete.
Ena successfully defended her PhD Dissertation on Smart Dynamic Casting: A Digital fabrication method for concrete structures on June 16, 2016. In 2012 Smart Dynamic Casting received the Concrete Innovation Award at the Concrete Innovation Conference in Oslo and was amongst the 5 finalists for the SPARK award at the ETH Zurich.
