Here is a rather interesting NY Times obituary of Constance Adams, space habitat architect.
I never heard of her, she died young (53), but sounds quite interesting and did some fun design stuff.

I hadn't heard of her before this either, but she seems to have been on a good path. This seems like a good epitaph...

Ms. Adams had been interviewing for an architectural job in Houston in 1996 when she took a tour of NASA’s Johnson Space Center. The tour roused her curiosity and led to two decades of work that challenged her to create living facilities for humans in the rarefied environment of space.

“How could the child of a historian resist?” she said in an interview with Metropolis magazine in 1999. “This is a big historical effort of our time.”
