Join Julie Bargmann, founder of U.S.-based D.I.R.T. studio and inaugural recipient of the 2021 Cornelia Hahn Oberlander International Prize in Landscape Architecture, for her lecture entitled What Would Cornelia Do? According to Bargmann, "good design isn't enough" when it comes to creating beautiful and enduring landscapes: "environmental regeneration, social equity, savvy resourcefulness and sheer joy" are also required. In that regard, Bargmann does what the late legend Cornelia Oberlander did, which is "dig deep, carefully and empathetically find, let form and process emerge from the place, and design the landscape with a vengeance." After 30 years of teaching generations to take risks and do good, not just design, Bargmann was recently named Professor Emerita in Landscape Architecture at the University of Virginia School of Architecture.
