Heather Roberge is a practicing architect and educator in Los Angeles. She is associate vice chair of the Department of Architecture at UCLA, and director of the undergraduate program in architectural studies. She teaches graduate courses in design and technology. Formerly, as coprincipal of Gnuform, she explored an architecture of effective atmospheres through a vitalist-materialist model of practice. Murmur continues these investigations, with a special focus on the spatial, structural, and atmospheric innovation made possible by emerging digital design and manufacturing techniques. Roberge's research focuses on the atmospheric implications of contemporary surfaces with particular interest in formal and material experimentation that engages the senses. Prior to co-founding Gnuform, Roberge worked at Hellmuth, Obata + Kassabaum, Davis Brody Bond, Architecture Research Office, and Eisenman Architects.
