Myra Messner


Each day Myra strives to materialize beauty in life. She joined Lutsko Associates in 2018 after earning her MLA at UC Berkeley in 2017 and working on projects at a range of scales in design offices in Berkeley and Monterey. Prior to her design career, she worked as a museum preparator, content marketer, and native plant salesperson and broker. Her inspirations include the numerous microclimates along the West Coast, the forests and lakes of the Upper Midwest, artists Richard Diebenkorn and Richard Stella, and Land Art. Myra uses her spare time to run California’s diverse trails, longboard with her partner, knit sweaters and draw.
