Michelle Addington / Yale School of Architecture

Gui Auditorium / Knowlton Hall
October 26, 2016 - 5:30pm


Michelle Addington will lecture in Knowlton Hall’s Gui Auditorium 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 26, 2016. The lecture is free and open to the public. Addington is the Hines Professor of Sustainable Architectural Design at the Yale School of Architecture and holds a joint appointment with the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies.

Educated as an architect and engineer, Addington’s teaching and research explore energy systems, advanced materials, and new technologies. Building on her dissertation research on the discrete control of boundary layer heat transfer using micro-machines, Addington has extended her work to defining the strategic relationships between the differing scales of energy phenomena and the possible actions from the domain of building construction.

Addington’s articles and chapters on energy, system design, HVAC, lighting, and advanced materials have appeared in several journals, books, and reference volumes. She coauthored the book Smart Materials and Technologies for the Architecture and Design Professions and just recently published “Emerging Technologies.”

Addington taught at Harvard University for ten years before coming to Yale in 2006. Her engineering background includes work at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, and she spent a decade at Dupont as a process design and power plant engineer. In 2009 Architect magazine selected Ms. Addington as one of the country’s top ten faculty in architecture. Addington holds a Bachelor in Architecture from Temple University, a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Tulane University, and a Master in Design Studies and Doctorate of Design from Harvard University.
