This book aims to provide a broad overview of the versatility of the architecture of Bergen Noord-Holland, as a blueprint for the developments of Dutch architecture in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The invisible red line in the book is the metamorphosis of a sleepy farming village into an enclave of artists and an open-air museum of architectural styles.

The carrier is the selection of 22 buildings, which are exemplary for this. This so-called canon of Bergen is widely measured in text and image. In addition to the unsurpassed villa neighborhood of Park Meerwijk, relatively unknown buildings by the best Dutch architects such as H.P. Berlage and J.B. van Loghem and Patrick Fransen, Jo Coenen, Thijs Asselbergs and Ben van Berkel were selected. John Lewis Marshall’s photographs and texts with connections to the many valuable socio-cultural aspects of Bergen, but always in relation to architecture and spatial development, result in a unique book.
