Opening Night: How to Build a House

Join us for the opening reception for the exhibition, How to Build a House: Architectural Research in the Digital Age. The exhibition focuses on the DFAB House and the work of Gramazio Kohler Research at Swiss university ETH Zurich.

The exhibition, created by Gramazio Kohler Research and the chair for Digital Building Technologies at ETH Zurich, examines the digital transformation of architecture and construction. It reveals the conception and making of the DFAB HOUSE: A three-story experimental building demonstrating pioneering research in computational design and digital fabrication conducted by architects in collaboration with experts in fields ranging from robotics to material science.

Together, they jointly created the first fully inhabitable building from the labs of ETH Zurich; a building that moves the boundaries of what robotics and 3D printing in architecture can do today. The exhibit is an entry point into understanding the digital as a novel domain for architects to draw from at each step of the design, fabrication, and assembly of a building.

The exhibition includes prototypes, a VR experience, images and videos of the DFAB House. Come and explore. Matthias Kohler and Benjamin Dillenburger of ETH Zurich will walk us through the exhibition.
