Ammar Mirjan

Ammar Mirjan is an architect, a machinist and a maker. His work focuses on the coupling of digital design space and physical fabrication space with robotic systems.

He has a background in automation engineering and has studied architecture in Switzerland and in London. After working in different architectural practices, he joined the Professorship for Architecture and Digital Fabrication of Prof. Fabio Gramazio and Prof. Matthias Kohler at ETH Zurich. He has been working on a series of research projects exploring robotic material practices with wax, clay, concrete and metal and has thought various international workshops and lectures, including Fabricate, RMIT, IaaC and others.

With an interdisciplinary approach, he is currently pursuing his Ph.D. in architecture, where he investigates the design potential of materialisation processes with flying robots.
