Electrical Skin is a robotically 3D printed free-form façade-panel with integrated lighting. For the first time in architecture, not only the complex form, but also the electric infrastructure are fabricated in a single process. This project showcases how leaps in computation and digital fabrication can revolutionize architectural components.

Research for the project and the workshop is carried out at the chair for DBT, ETH Zurich and supported by National Centre of Competence in Research(NCCR) Digital Fabrication.
