Gernot Parmann is Assistant Professor at the Institute for Structural Design at Graz University of Technology since 2012. He studied Architecture at Graz University of Technology. Before his studies he was accomplished as a cast mechanic and machine tool operator and worked in this profession for 10 years. Since his diploma thesis “Modular Standard” in 2012 he has been working in the field of applied research for manufacturing processes, specifically in concrete construction. At present, he is writing his PhD thesis about the fabrication of UHPC shell-structures and works as a Project Manager for product development at Max Bögl Bauservice GmbH.
Andreas Trummer is Associate Professor for Structural Design and Robotic Fabrication at Graz University of Technology. He studied Structural Engineering at Graz University of Technology and earned his PhD at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna in 2002. Since 2009 he has been establishing the “Roboter Design Labor” and set his research focus on questions of digital fabrication of load carrying building elements. These range from prefabricated concrete shell‐elements to the Ceramic Shell Project in collaboration with the GSD Design Robotics Group and the ongoing project about the future of concrete 3D printing processes.
