September 1-3, 2017, Main Building ETH Zurich, Zurich: Zurich Research Fair Scientifica 2017 – What Data Reveal
At the research fair Scientifica, scholars from UZH and ETH Zurich meet with the general population and share how data is used in their research. They discuss how processing and analyzing data affects daily life and our society. And in a series of talks and exhibitions, they also demonstrate that scholarship can be fun. The NCCR Digital Fabrication will be present with an exhibition stand about 3D printing in architecture.
April 24-28, 2017, Hannover, Germany: Hannover Messe, Both presenting innovative building technology Mesh Mould – Winner of the Swiss Technology Award 2016″
Hannover Messe has been the world’s most important industrial tradeshow and largest capital goods exhibition for years. The NCCR Digital Fabrication will present the novel building technology Mesh Mould on the common exhibition both of Switzerland. Come and visit us!
April 1 – July 16, 2017, Museum of Digital Arts, Zurich: Gramazio Kohler
Exhibition of work by NCCR principal investigators Matthias Kohler and Fabio Gramazio. The two trained architects Fabio Gramazio and Matthias Kohler combine the physics of built architecture with digital logic. They don’t design physical structures solely by drawing, but conceive spatial relationships and contextual behaviour through programming.
March 15 – June 19, 2017, Centre Pompidou, Paris, France: “Mutation-Créations / Imprimer le monde”
The exhibition presents work from around 30 innovative artists, designers and architects who experiment with 3D printing technology and features the NCCR Digital Fabrication’s research project Smart Dynamic Casting lead by Gramazio Kohler Research and work by NCCR principal investigator Benjamin Dillenburger.
February 2 – May 14, 2017, Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein, Germany: “Hello, Robot. Design between Human and Machine”
In the exhibition »Hello, Robot. Design between Human and Machine«, the Vitra Design Museum thoroughly examines the current robotics boom for the first time. The exhibition presents a variety of exhibits, including examples of robots from homes, industry or medicine, but also media installations, computer games and examples from film and literature. Amongst the exhibits are works from Gramazio Kohler Research, chaired by NCCR principal investigators Fabio Gramazio and Matthias Kohler.
November 8, 2016 – April 23, 2017, ArtLab, EPF Lausanne, Lausanne: “Noir c’est noir? Les Outrenoirs de Pierre Soulages “
Organized jointly by the Fondation Gandur pour l’Art (FGA) and the Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), the exhibition “Noir, c’est noir? The Outrenoirs of Pierre Soulages” features a strong experimental character. Soulages, a prominent figure of abstract painting, explores the properties of the color black. By venturing into Outrenoir, which is to say beyond the black, the artist seeks to treat light as a material. Together with the FGA, five EPFL laboratories, amongst which the Computer Graphics and Geometry Laboratory lead by NCCR principal investigator Mark Pauly, alongside startups originating from the school put their research and technologies at the service of an original approach to the Outrenoirs.
