Michelle Addington began her career as a structural engineer working for NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center, where she developed structural data for composite materials and designed components for unmanned spacecraft. But when she went back to school for architecture, no one found her background in engineering appealing because it wasn't "creative," so at first she struck it from her resume. Now she is a specialist in discrete systems and technology transfer and an advisor on energy and sustainability for the Department of Energy and the AIA. She is currently the Hines Professor of Sustainable Architectural Design at Yale University and was named one of the country's "Top 10 Faculty in Architecture" by Architect magazine in 2009.
