Ammar Mirjan is an architect and a researcher with a background in automation engineering. He received a B.A. degree in Architecture from the Bern University of Applied Sciences and a M.Arch. degree from the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London. He has worked for architectural offices in New York, Tokyo and London. His interest in the relationship between designing and making with robotic systems motivated him to move back to Switzerland in 2011 and join the Professorship for Architecture and Digital Fabrication (Prof. Fabio Gramazio, Prof. Matthias Kohler) at ETH Zurich. Between 2013 and 2016 he led the ETH Grant research project Aerial Construction and completed his PhD on architectural fabrication processes with flying robots in 2016. At Gramazio Kohler Research he oversees and is involved in a variety of different research projects related to robotic fabrication. He joined the NCCR Digital Fabrication as a postdoctoral researcher in 2017.
