Brownfields 2023 Opening Plenary:

Julie Bargmann and Philip Kafka

Join us on Tuesday, August 8th at 4:30pm for the Brownfields 2023 EPA Opening Plenary, headlined by Julie Bargmann of D.I.R.T. Studio and Philip Kafka of Price Concepts.

Julie Bargmann is internationally recognized as an innovative designer in building regenerative landscapes. She founded D.I.R.T. studio in 1992 to research, design and build projects with passion and rigor. Born and bred surrounded by refineries and factories, Julie is a straight-talker, not afraid to provoke but doing so to tease out what matters most about places.

Philip Kafka is president of Prince Concepts, which owns and is activating approximately 750,000 square feet of real estate — all contiguous — in downtown Detroit. Prince Concepts acquires property, and — when appropriate — designs programming around the people and properties discovered along the way. Projects include managing the design and development of Takoi restaurant on Michigan Avenue, and the development of True North apartments.
