E-Book: The Robotic Touch – How Robots Change Architecture
When "The Robotic Touch" was first published in 2014 by Park Books, it marked a pioneering exploration into the realm of digital architecture. Whether you're an architect, a technology enthusiast, or simply intrigued by our endeavors, the book serves as a gateway to comprehending the profound impact robotics has on shaping our built environment. Originally released as a hardcover book and now out of print, we have made a freely accessible E-book version. Our aim is to make the wealth of knowledge within "The Robotic Touch" available to everyone. Download the E-book here.

The Robotic Touch – How Robots Change Architecture
Park Books.
„The Robotic Touch – How Robots Change Architecture“ introduces a radically new way of thinking about and materialising architecture. It is the first anthology on architectural design with robots and provides a selection of projects that have originated over almost a decade of research at ETH Zurich. Within that scope, the book not only outlines a digital building culture to come, it deliberately proposes that this culture be shaped by architects. The book is now out of print. Nevertheless, we have made a freely accessible E-book out of it. Download the E-book here.

Flight Assembled Architecture
Editions Hyx.
The book Flight Assembled Architecture is an in-depth catalogue of the exhibition project of the same name which was developed by Gramazio & Kohler and Raffaello D’Andrea and showed at the Fonds régional d'art contemporain (Frac) Centre in Orléans, France. It presents a close exploration of the particular, and fascinating, positions of the authors and their research on architecture, system design and autonomous robotic technologies. In this, the book reveals a detailed insight into the realization of this spectacular exhibition and further equips the reader with a historical contextualization of the project.
