MAS Programme in Architecture and Digital Fabrication 2015-2016
The Master of Advanced Studies (MAS) ETH in Architecture and Digital Fabrication is a one year postgraduate programme dealing with methods and technologies relating to digital design and fabrication and their implementation in architecture and construction. During the academic year 2015/2016, 17 students develop novel design concepts and realise large-scale prototypes using the NCCR Digital Fabrication’s unique robotic fabrication facilities. Complementary courses describe and exemplify how new technologies, materials and processes contribute to an advanced and sustainable construction culture, focusing specifically on timber construction. The programme will culminate into an architectural project executed in 1:1 on which the methods and techniques explored during the year will be synthesised.
