Fatemeh Amiri received her bachelor’s degree in both architecture and civil engineering at Azad University and University
science and culture in Iran. In 2017, she obtained her master’s in architecture at the Azad University, Science and Research
Branch in Iran.
She has just completed her Masters in Advanced Studies in Architecture and Digital Fabrication at the ETH Zurich, class
of 2019-2020. Her thesis topic, Carbon Fiber Exoskeleton, explores the potential of using carbon fiber-reinforcement onto
3D-printed freeform formworks for the materialization of thin concrete components. Based on Ph.D. research at the Chair
of Digital Building Technologies, the thesis develops a computational method based on structural-optimization strategy
enabling the reduction of the materials to be applied only where they are needed.
In parallel to her Bachelor’s studies in Iran, Fatemeh began her professional career at one of the largest design and construction
firms, Ahaab Co.
There she trained her design and project management skills both in structure and architecture projects. As her interest in
furthering her knowledge in computational Architecture topics grew, she participated in a series of courses and workshops
focus on digital design topics. This learning brought her, in 2017, to establish a company Sizan, specialized in 2017 in Tehran,
Iran in partnership with Omid Amini.
