Michelle Addington, Hines Professor of Sustainable Architectural Design at Yale University, is educated as both an architect and engineer whose teaching and research explore energy systems, advanced materials and new technologies. Her articles and chapters on energy, system design, HVAC, lighting and materials have appeared in several journals, books and reference volumes, and she co-authored “Smart Materials and Technologies for the Architecture and Design Professions” and the recently published “Emerging Technologies.”
Addington also taught at Harvard University for ten years before coming to Yale in 2006. Her engineering background includes work at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, where she developed structural data for composite materials and designed components for unmanned spacecraft, and she spent a decade at Dupont as a process design and power plant engineer as well as a
manufacturing supervisor. In 2009, Architect magazine selected her as one of the country’s top ten faculty in architecture. She holds the B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Tulane University, the B. Arch from Temple University, the M. Des and Dr. Des from Harvard University as well as an honorary M.A. from Yale.
