Phil Myrick has a wealth of experience in placemaking, community engagement, management, planning, and urban design. Myrick joins us from Moore Iacofano Goltsman, Inc. (MIG), where he worked as Director of Planning since 2013. Here, he used his knowledge in experience design to help plan walkable communities, destination parks, successful retail districts, and cultural districts.
Myrick’s appointment to lead Project for Public Spaces is something of a homecoming: before his work at MIG, he was a member of PPS’s staff for 18 years, most recently as Senior Vice President. In that capacity, Myrick represented the organization in high-profile presentations and meetings around the world, and helped develop the organization’s profile and practice through the execution of strategic initiatives and major projects. Two of his most recognized projects include Discovery Green in Houston and Hemisfair Park in San Antonio. During his career, Myrick has established ties with many leading planning and design firms across the U.S. and abroad.
