Ina Cheibas graduated in 2013 with a Bachelors and Masters Degree in Architecture at the Ion Mincu University of Architecture in Bucharest, Romania. From 2013 until 2016, she worked in several architectural practices with a focus on sustainability and innovation. In 2016, at DUS Architects and Aectual, Ina specialized in digital modeling and fabrication, namely Fused Deposition Modeling for large-scale architecture elements. In 2018 she worked at the European Space Agency in the Advanced Concepts Team as a researcher in Space Architecture and Infrastructure to develop future additive manufacturing techniques for a moon habitat.
Current research at NCCR investigates the additive manufacturing feasibility of a multifunctional façade. Additive manufacturing is a novel fabrication technique. It can enable higher performances and efficiency of facades, by facilitating integrated functions, applying multi-materials, and complex geometries.
