Assistant Professor, A. Alfred Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning
Meredith L. Miller is an Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan, Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, where she entered as an A. Alfred Taubman Fellow in 2009-2010. She is a licensed architect and co-founder of MILLIGRAM-office, a design practice and research platform. Their recent projects include building additions in New York and Virginia and Site Double, a full-scale installation at the 2012 Venice Biennale, Common Grounds.
Through coursework and writing, her current research explores the influence of environmental thinking on architecture and its outcomes as a diverse set of forms and practices. Her urban research on the complex effects of inundation in the southeast Asian megacities of Bangkok and Jakarta, a collaboration with Etienne Turpin and students from Taubman College, University of Indonesia, and Hong Kong University, will be featured the forthcoming edited volume, Jakarta: Architecture+Adaptation. This interest in architecture as both an ecological agent and as a representational project informs her own design research. Her experimental design and fabrication project, (De)composing Territory was awarded a Research Through Making grant. The project considers the aesthetics and temporality of bioplastics in concert with environmental factors.
Meredith received her M.Arch from Princeton University and holds a BS in architecture from the University of Virginia. Meredith has previously practiced in design firms in New York and Boston, where she was a project architect with Höweler + Yoon architecture and contributed to various projects including Sky Courts and Hover. Within this office, Meredith also co-authored the book Public Works: Unsolicited Small Projects for the Big Digon tactical design interventions within a new infrastructural landscape. Her writing has also been featured inMONU, Pidgin, Thresholds, and Another Pamphlet.
