Robotic Assemblies: Methods and MatterMatteo Pacher attained his Bachelor of Architecture at La Sapienza University of Rome, Italy, in 2011. He was selected for the International Media Architecture Master Studies (IMAMS) dual degree program, receiving a master degree in Media Architecture at the Bauhaus University Weimar, Germany, and a Master of Science in Architecture at the SUNY University at Buffalo - School of Architecture and Planning, USA. Afterwards he worked in different architecture practices in Italy, China and Germany. In 2016-17 he took part at the Master of Advanced Studies in Architecture and Digital Fabrication at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. Currently he works as a scientific assistant for Gramazio Kohler Research collaborating on the Spatial Timber Assemblies and Robotic Lightweight Structures projects.Gramazio Kohler Research group examines the changes in architectural production requirements that result from introducing digital manufacturing techniques. Their special interest lies in combining data and material and the resulting implications this has on the architectural design. The possibility of directly fabricating building components described on the computer expands not only the spectrum of possibilities for construction, but, by the direct implementation of material and production logic into the design process, it establishes a unique architectural expression and a new aesthetic.The talk will be held in English.
