The web site of Ms. Roberge's firm, Murmur, made this self-appraisal of her approach: "Formerly, as co-principal of Gnuform, Ms. Roberge 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. Ms. Roberge’s research focuses on the atmospheric implications of contemporary surfaces with particular interest in formal and material experimentation that engages the senses."
