Lee Fithian

Pallas the Librarian interviews architect, Lee Fithian. Lee and Pallas also make soap powered boats and discuss the book, “The New Mathematics of Architecture” by Jane Burry and Mark Burry.

Lee Fithian is an Architect and Associate Professor at The University of Oklahoma. Lee’s research and teaching efforts focus on the application of biological and ecological models to architectural design. She is finishing her dissertation in Engineering which has led to a patented building facade system that removes air pollutants from urban streets. Lee builds connections through interdisciplinary research to enable buildings to conserve and regenerate air, water, and energy in urban and suburban environments. Each of the courses she teaches carries a strong focus on the technical development and integration of analytical visualizations in order to develop not only sustainable but beautiful buildings.

Lee has over 17 years of commercial and governmental architecture practice experience, including serving as former Director of Sustainable Design at the Benham Companies (now Leidos). Within the State of Oklahoma, she helped found the Oklahoma Sustainability Network and the State Chapter of the US Green Building Council. Lee currently serves on the Committee on the Environment for the American Institute of Architects.
