Jamie PhillipsPLA


Jamie Phillips is a Principal at CMG Landscape Architecture. She believes landscape design has a social and environmental responsibility and enjoys working with engaged communities and has participated in many of the firm’s largest and most complex open space projects around the Bay Area over the past 10 years. Jamie has been on the forefront of sea level rise planning and is currently leading Crissy Field Next, a vision plan with the Parks Conservancy and National Park Service, to refine the resiliency and early marsh adaption of the coastal park to rising sea levels. She co-led CMG’s participation in the Resilient by Design: Bay Area Challenge, a community design and planning process for the protection and restoration of San Leandro Bay. Jamie pioneered the integration of design and ecological storm water treatment at all scales, small scale urban biofilters like Folsom Street, to integrated masterplans such as Bay Meadows and Treasure Island.

Many of Jamie’s projects such as Hunters Point Shipyard Hillpoint Park and Marin Country Day School have been honored with Merit and Honor Awards from the American Society of Landscape Architects. Jamie lectures frequently on the issues of sea level rise, public space, and ecology, and recently co-lectured Ecological Factors in Urban Landscape Design in UC Berkeley’s LAEP Department. Her appreciation for design stems from her collegiate study at the Auburn Rural Studio where she received a Bachelor degree in Landscape Architecture. Jamie also holds a Master of Landscape Architecture from Harvard Graduate School of Design.
