John Bergmans was a garden architect who grew into a botanist, grower and author of books on the world of plants.
John Bergmans designed villa gardens, neighbourhood green spaces, botanical gardens, recreation parks, and cemeteries in Noord-Brabant and Limburg. This online exhibition showcases some stunning examples of his work from the interwar period and the Post-World War II reconstruction. A number of his designs are now national heritage sites or protected townscapes. Special Collections curates a large portion of Bergman’s oeuvre, including nearly 700 design sketches.
