About the Architect:

Heather Roberge is an LA-based designer and educator. She is the founder and principal of Murmur: Architecture and Environments and is associate professor in the Department of Architecture and Urban Design at UCLA where she currently serves as Vice Chair. Ms. Roberge’s research and professional work investigates the spatial, structural and atmospheric potential of digital technologies on the theory and practice of building. In graduate level courses in design and technology, her teaching emphasizes innovative approaches to material, computation, and manufacturing as opportunities to expand the formal vocabulary and spatial implications of building envelopes and assemblies. In recognition of her distinctive work, she was selected for the prestigious 2016 Emerging Voices Program by the Architectural League of New York. In 2015 her installation for the SCI-Arc Gallery, En Pointe, was awarded an AIA design merit award. In 2011 Murmur’s proposal for the Succulent House received an AIA Next LA design merit award. Her work has been published in A+U, Praxis, Metropolis, I.D., Wallpaper, Architectural Record, Log, 306090, Form Magazine, The New York Times, and The Los Angeles Times and exhibited in group shows in the U.S. and abroad.
