Digital Materiality in Architecture

Fabio Gramazio and Matthais Kohler
2008, Lars Muller Publishers


Fabio Gramazio and Matthias Kohler use the term digital materiality to describe an emerging transformation in the expression of architecture. Digital materiality evolves through the interplay between digital and material processes in design and construction. In their book, Digital Materiality in Architecture Gramazio and Kohler present their innovative work, which has focused on the synthesis of these two seemingly distinct worlds – the digital and the material. This synthesis is enabled by the techniques of digital fabrication, which allows the architect to control the manufacturing process through design data. Material is thus enriched by information; material becomes “informed.”
