Heather Roberge is the principal of Murmur: Architecture and Environments and is associate professor in the Department of Architecture and Urban Design at UCLA where she currently holds the position of director of the undergraduate program in Architectural Studies. She is a respected designer with experience across scales from corporate and academic buildings to single and multi-family residences. In 2016, Ms. Roberge was recognized as an Emerging Voice by the Architectural League of New York.
Ms. Roberge’s research and professional work investigates the spatial, structural, and atmospheric potential of digital technologies on the theory and practice of building. Her work emphasizes innovative approaches to material, computation, and manufacturing as opportunities to expand the formal vocabulary and spatial implications of building envelopes and assemblies. Her work has been published in A+U, Praxis, Metropolis, I.D., Wallpaper, Architect Magazine, Architectural Record, Log, 306090, The New York Times, and The Los Angeles Times. Her installation for the SCI-Arc Gallery, En Pointe, and her proposal for the Succulent House received AIA LA design merit awards. In 2014 the Vortex House was nominated for the Mies Crown Hall Americas Prize for Emerging Architecture.
