Phu is an urban designer and architect in the New York office, working on domestic and international projects that impact the city-region and engender community life through place-based concepts for urban planning and development. Phu’s design craft and knowledge of project delivery guides multidisciplinary teams — across the firm’s practices and offices — from design conception to completion of competition- and award-winning projects.
Since 2003, Phu has been influencing the next generation of urban designers and architects through teaching appointments at Columbia University, Syracuse University and Parsons the New School for Design, and by leading workshops at the Izmir University of Economics in Turkey, Washington University and the Oslo School of Architecture. In New York he is engaged with the design community and brings his global insights about city-making home to Brooklyn, where he resides and serves to empower his local community board.
