Miriam Roure is the founder of FIELD, a firm specialized on the creative application of technology within the built environment. Previously, she spent two years at MIT’s Senseable City Lab where she has led research projects considering the use of new pervasive sensing technologies on urban planning processes. Miriam holds degrees from Harvard University (MArchII) and Cornell University (BArch). Trained as an architect and an urban design, she worked at the Office for Metropolitan Architecture in Rotterdam, as part of their creative think tank division, on projects that demanded applied architectural thinking, within and beyond built form. At Harvard she studied how architecture and design thinking can have an impact across fields, which led her to intern at Continuum Innovation in 2012 and to organize the first Harvard xDesign Conference in 2013.
