Alexander Nikolas Walzer is an architect and researcher with a strong interest in Digital Fabrication, Rapid Prototyping and Computational Design. He was educated in Austria, Italy, Spain and Australia where he studied under Theodore Spyropoulos, Francois Roche, Neil Gershenfield, Matias del Campo and Roland Snooks. He gained work experience in architectural offices in Vienna, at the Fab Lab Barcelona and Kokkugia Melbourne, holds a Bachelor Degree from the University of Innsbruck and a Master of Science (Dipl. Ing.) Degree from the Technical University of Vienna. Moreover, he has participated in several courses, workshops, conferences and international artist residencies.
From 2016 to 2018 he worked as research assistant on the “Mesh Mould” and “In Situ Fabricator” projects at the Chair of Architecture and Digital Fabrication (Gramazio Kohler Research) and the National Competence Centre in Research (NCCR) Digital Fabrication at ETH Zurich. The research projects culminated in a full-scale, load-bearing and mobile robotically fabricated reinforcement mesh for a freeform and formwork-free reinforced concrete wall within the dfab house at the Empa NEST building.
Since of June 2018 Alexander is doctoral candidate (PhD) at ETH Zurich. His research investigates slender and geometrically expressive reinforced concrete elements, currently in collaboration with Disney Research Zurich.
