Philip Syvertsen PLA
Philip serves as a design team member at JRA with a background in both architecture and landscape holding a BA in Architecture from Washington University in St. Louis and a MArch + MLA from the University of Washington, and project experience ranging from master planning to building design. He is a licensed landscape architect in Illinois. His professional interests lie at the intersection of landscape and architecture and how they can inform one another. He was born and raised in Evanston, IL before moving to Oslo, Seattle and ultimately returning to Chicago. Philip enjoys digging into the cultural and physical histories of the places he has lived and visited. As one of the tallest JRA employees, it’s no shock that Philip played basketball in college and still enjoys a pick-up game now and again.
