Jess Myers

Jessica Myers is a podcaster, writer and editor focusing on urban planning and architecture. In 2017 she received a master’s degree in City Planning from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She also holds a BA in Architecture, with minors in Urban Studies and French, from Princeton University. Outside of her work as the architectural strategist for LaPlaca Cohen, Myers is the series editor of Taking Freedom, a social justice book series that will be published by a coalition of the Service Employees International Union, MIT’s Community Innovators Lab and Sage Publications. In the past, Myers worked in diverse roles—archivist, translator, analyst—in both New York and Paris, and within cultural practices that include Bernard Tschumi Architects. Her personal interests and research engage multimedia platforms as a means to explore culture and the urban condition. Her podcast Here There Be Dragons takes an in-depth look at the intersection of identity politics and security policy in public space through the eyes of New Yorkers and Parisians.
