Russell Loveridge – NCCR Digital Fabrication

CDR– Remote Design Technology Lecture Series

Reminder this lecture will be held at 11:00 am.

Dr. Russell Loveridge, Managing Director of the NCCR Digital Fabrication
National Centre of Competence in Research, Digital Fabrication,  ETH Zurich

Russell Loveridge is Managing Director of the Swiss National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) in Digital Fabrication. He studied civil engineering and architecture, completed his professional degree in Toronto, his MAS Diploma in Architecture at the ETH Zurich, and obtained his doctorate at the EPF Lausanne Switzerland. He has worked professionally in construction and architecture, but also has extensive experience academics and was previously the Research Director at the Laboratory for Architectural Production (LAPA) at the EPFL. His research investigates advanced fabrication methods, smart materials, and novel construction techniques all with a specific interest on how these emerging technologies affect processes of design.  Since its inception in 2014 Russell has coordinated the NCCR’s multi-disciplinary team of over 120 researchers, engineers and technical staff, helping to develop one of the most advanced multi-disciplinary research consortiums worldwide that focus on changing the way we design and build.



As part of the Center for Design Research’s evolving technologies initiative, Nathan
King and Martin Angst have organized a series of remote lectures focusing on digital
design, fabrication, and robotics as part of their courses Future Making and Advanced
Design and Fabrication in Architecture, along with the CDR Material Pioneers program.
While a core part of the curriculum for the courses, these lectures may be of interest to
other students and faculty and therefore will open to all. The lecture series is populated
with a diverse selection of international participants who operate within and on the
periphery of design representing multiple disciplines and perspectives.

For security purposes – Meeting ID will be distributed through A+D Weekly.
