Konrad Graser completed his master’s degree in architecture at ETH Zurich, Switzerland, in 2004. Since then his focus lies on the integration of digital technologies in architectural design with a special interest in its integration in the physical building process. As a project manager and building technologies specialist at SHoP Architects in New York, USA, from 2004 to 2012, he has worked on the vertical integration of digital design and fabrication in the construction process. Next to this practical work he conducted interdisciplinary research and development in the field of sustainable building technologies. During his employment as a project manager for facade engineering at Werner Sobek’s office in Stuttgart, Germany, he was responsible for the design and engineering of complex building envelopes. Past academic assignments include co-teaching a research and design studio at the Yale School of Architecture in New Haven, USA, teaching design and advanced geometry as an adjunct professor at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco, USA, and technical advising at the Institute for Lightweight Structures at the University of Stuttgart, Germany. Konrad Graser joined the NCCR Digital Fabrication in September 2015 as the Project Manager for the NEST Unit DFAB HOUSE and is currently working on a PhD in the Chair of Innovative and Industrial Construction (Daniel Hall) at ETH Zurich.
