HiLo: NEST Research Building Takes the Next Step to Sustainable Construction

The doubly-curved roof and latticed structural membranes knit by integrating advanced systems and human inputs, shape the next evolutionary step to sustainable construction. HiLo presents the attractive architecture woven by the combination of energy-resource saving construction and execution. Hilo designed atop Empa’s and Eawag’s NEST research and innovation building implemented by ETH Zurich’s Block Research Group and the Architecture and Building Systems Group in collaboration with many industrial partners take the giant leap of sustainable creations.

Iridescence Print by Gramazio Kohler Research

Iridescence Print is the first large-scale architectural installation by Gramazio Kohler Research automatically 3d printed using robotic machines in 2015. GKR (Gramazio Kohler Research) is a research group founded by Fabio Gramazio and Matthias Kohler. GKR examines the changes in architectural production requirements that result from introducing digital manufacturing techniques. They combine data and material and the resulting implications it has on the architectural design.
