The Norman Foster Foundation presents its first annual Robotics Atelier, related to design and building, with the support of the Rolex Institute.

Next Wednesday 22 November at 6 p.m. we will host in our auditorium the public lecture included in this year’s Robotics Atelier, given by Professor Matthias Kohler from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich.

Entitled The Robotic Touch we will reflect how society is on the edge of being transformed through robotics and artificial intelligence and how these technological innovations have the potential to change every aspect of our lives in far-reaching ways. After the lecture we will host a conversation between Matthias Kohler and Amelie Klein, Curator at Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, Germany.

The event will be livestreamed. You can join the discussion on Social Media with the hashtag #AtelierRobotics.

If you are interested in attending, please get your ticket here. Access will be allowed until full capacity is reached.

Matthias Kohler

Matthias Kohler is an architect with multi-disciplinary interests ranging from computational design and robotic fabrication to material innovation. In 2000, he founded the architecture practice Gramazio & Kohler in conjunction with his partner Fabio Gramazio, where numerous award-winning designs have been realised. Current projects include the design of the EmpaNEST research platform, a future living and working laboratory for sustainable building construction. Opening also the world’s first architectural robotic laboratory at ETH Zurich, Gramazio & Kohler’s research has been formative in the field of digital architecture, setting precedence and de facto creating a new research field that merges advanced architectural design and additive fabrication processes through the customised use of industrial robots.

Since 2014, Matthias Kohler is also director of the new National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) Digital Fabrication.

Amelie Klein

Amelie Klein has been a curator at Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, Germany, since August 2011, where most recently she opened the international travelling exhibition Hello, Robot. Design between Human and Machine. Most currently, the show has moved from the MAK – Austrian Museum of Applied Arts /Contemporary Art in Vienna to the Design museum Gent in Belgium. Before that, Klein oversaw Making Africa – A Continent of Contemporary Design, for which she was nominated for the 2015 art Magazine Curator Prize. Since its opening at the Vitra Design Museum Making Africa has travelled to the Guggenheim Bilbao, CCCB Barcelona, Kunsthal Rotterdam, and most recently to the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, GA, USA. Klein completed an MA in Design Criticism at New York’s School of Visual Arts and prior to that worked as a design and creative industry editor at the Austrian daily Die Presse. She has published numerous articles in a range of design and architectural publications, including Abitaredomus online, and Metropolis

Norman Foster Foundation

The Norman Foster Foundation promotes interdisciplinary thinking and research to help new generations of architects, designers and urbanists to anticipate the future. We believe in the importance of connecting architecture, design, technology and the arts to better serve society and in the value of a holistic education that encourages experimentation through research and projects.

The Norman Foster Foundation holds the Norman Foster Archive and Library, which provide a window into the larger narrative and history of our built environment through the work of Norman Foster. The Norman Foster Foundation is based in Madrid and operates globally.
