Ph.D. Researcher at the Chair for Construction Heritage and Preservation, ETH Zurich. Matthias studied architecture in Munich, Rome, and Toronto with a focus on structural design. He received his master’s degree with high distinction from TUM in 2019. In 2020 he pursued postgraduate studies in Design Thinking at the HPI D-School. Currently, he is a Ph.D. candidate within the NCCR dfab, with a focus on AM for the repair of High-Tech facades.
This project investigates the application of computational design and digital manufacturing technologies investigated within the NCCR Phase 2, especially in the area of 3D-printed bespoke metal joints and façade systems, to the existing building stock in the context of preservation and repair of the younger building stock.
