Company profile

Initiated in 2014, the National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) Digital Fabrication aims to revolutionise architecture through the seamless combination of digital technologies and physical building processes. Over 60 researchers from six different disciplines collaborate to develop ground-breaking technologies for tomorrows construction.
