Julie L. Bargmann
Associate Professor and Program Director,

Landscape Architecture,
School of Architecture;
Director,
Center of Expertise for Superfund Site Recycling

434-924-6465
 

Center Director Julie Bargmann is nationally recognized as an innovative designer in building regenerative landscapes and with interdisciplinary design education. Her on-going design research Project D.I.R.T. (Design Investigations Reclaiming Terrain) continues to excavate the creative potential of disturbed landscapes. At the University of Virginia, Associate Professor Bargmann's investigative graduate design studios and seminars challenge restrictive policies and conventional remediation practices that plague Superfund sites and Brownfields. Applying this research at her small design practice, projects at the D.I.R.T. studio (Dump It Right There) explore past and present industrial and urban processes in relationship to ecological systems, cultural constructs and emerging technologies.
