Dallas: The Latest Architecture and News
“The day that I dedicated myself to call myself D.I.R.T., that was the day that I just stuck my flag in the ground, albeit being toxic ground, and I just said, you know, this is my life’s work ... And I think of Cornelia [Oberlander], and I think about her planting her flag in the ground. And how persistent she was in this kind of … dogged way.
“I’m maybe not a savior, but I like to think maybe I’m an avenger. And I am leading a charge. But to have more colleagues plant their flag in the ground and go, really go, and unrelentingly, just believe in what you’re doing. Don’t get all distracted and fulfill the program of projects. You know? Have at it.”
- Julie Bargmann, Inaugural Oberlander Prize Laureate
