Together with Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky, Alois Berger (1893–1970) entered the 1920 competition of the Gartenbau-Gesellschaft (Austrian Horticultural Society) relating to the allotment gardens planned on the Schafberg in Vienna. He later collaborated with the architects’ atelier of Franz Kaym and Alfons Hetmanek. Berger was a member of the German Gesellschaft für Gartenkunst (Society for Garden Design) and of the artists’ association ‘Berufsvereinigung Bildender Künstler – Sektion Gartenarchitekten’. At the Vienna Werkbund Estate, he and Grete Salzer designed the gardens of houses nos. 45–46 by Jacques Groag; Berger also created flower troughs for house no. 16 by Anton Brenner.
