Patrick’s research investigates new possibilities for architectural design in large-scale 3D printing with porous materials. This involves the invention of new fabrication technologies with material experts and the development of computational design instruments and robotic fabrication strategies.
After studying architecture at HTWK Leipzig and TU Delft, he gained experience internationally in offices such as Zaha Hadid (London), Delugan Meissl (Vienna) and Henn (Berlin, Beijing). Patrick lectured and tutored workshops in architectural schools throughout Europe (ETH Zurich, TU Delft, TU Berlin, Politecnico di Milano). Currently, he is a PhD researcher at the chair for Digital Building Technologies (dbt), Institute of Technology In Architecture (ITA) at the Department of Architecture (D-ARCH) of ETH Zurich and an associated researcher with the NCCR digital fabrication.
