Professor, UBC SALA

Originally from Germany, Inge Roecker is the founding member and principal of AIR studio. Her architectural practice focuses on sustainable housing design engaged with the changing social and cultural needs of urban and rural populations.

Inge is a passive house trained professional. Her designs embody an independent form of modernism while demonstrating her commitment to cultural and social issues in dialogue with the built environment. Her work focuses on contemporary programming, cultural context, and innovations in sustainability. Her expertise and research align multi-generational housing with the principles of inclusive design.

Inge is the co-founder of the interdisciplinary research collective, Design for Inclusion with Jessica Chen (of Wabi Sabi Planning Laboratories) which builds on her work in housing and communities through research, publications, and ongoing public dialogue. The social, cultural, and material significance of her practice has been recognized internationally through awards, publications, and exhibitions.

As a professor at the University of British Columbia in the School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (SALA), Inge leads community outreach studios in which she partners with public organizations and non-profits in socially engaged, student-led design initiatives. She has worked with the City of Vancouver’s Chinatown Revitalization Program in exploring design opportunities for transformation and resilience in the historic district. As an active member of her business and residential community, Inge serves on several boards, including Chinatown’s Society Buildings Revitalization Committee, Chinatown Historic Area Planning Committee, and the Chinatown Legacy Stewardship Group
