Keynote lecture title:
CAN WE ADD SUSTAINABILITY TO DIGITAL FABRICATION? 










Prof. Dr. Guillaume Habert holds the Chair of Sustainable Construction and is associate professor at the ETH Zürich since August 2012. The objective of the chair is to identify the relevant parameters that influence the environmental impacts of buildings and infrastructures at international, national and regional levels in order to implement sustainable practices throughout the development of innovative constructive techniques adapted to the technical, economic and socio-cultural situation of specific territories.
He is, since 2013 partner of a large National Competence Centre on Digital fabrication in Switzerland involving 15 Professors and more than 30 PhDs in different disciplines from computational science, robotics to architecture. His main work has been to explore the potentials of digital fabrication for a more sustainable construction and identify the key drivers, which need to be considered in the early design phase of projects.
