Joris Burger


Joris Burger has studied Architecture in the Netherlands, Sweden and Japan after which he completed his Master of Science in Building Technology (with distinction) at Delft University of Technology. During his studies he focused on digital fabrication, computational form finding and façade design. Furthermore he has gained professional experience working for the design, engineering and manufacturing company Octatube in Delft, the Netherlands. He completed his MSc thesis in collaboration with the chair of Architecture and Digital Fabrication (Prof. Fabio Gramazio, Prof. Matthias Kohler) before starting as a PhD Researcher within the NCCR Digital Fabrication.

Work Topic

Eggshell is a novel fabrication process for non-standard, reinforced concrete structures. It combines large-scale robotic 3D printing of formwork with simultaneous casting of a fast-hardening concrete. Its aim is to expand the geometrical possibilities of concrete, ultimately leading to material savings as well as enabling expressive architecture.
