Leberecht Migge (1881-1935) was one of the most innovative
landscape architects of the early 20th century. With work ranging
from large urban parks to housing settlements with allotment
gardens, he sought to create functional green spaces that would not
only meet the environmental challenges of the industrial metropolis
but also improve the social conditions of modern life. The
nationalistic rhetoric of 'Garden Culture of the Twentieth Century'
marks it as a political tract of the late Kaiserreich, and its deep
influence within the Siedlung communities of the Weimar era attests
to its lasting cultural impact.
