The New Garden is a public space with an ecological system of herbs, shrubs, animals and birds. Artist/designer Frank Bruggeman and ecological horticulturalist Hans Engelbrecht planted the garden in the spring of 2015 on the grounds around Het Nieuwe Instituut. The garden is a temporary landscape like those that spring up on wastelands and vacant inner-city plots. Bruggeman and Engelbrecht have selected plants that are suited to these specific circumstances. This flora is presented in a photo reportage.
