Biological and organic philosophies were of great importance to all reform-minded thinkers in Germany in the early twentieth century, and landscape architecture and planning were also affected. Here, we see how these ideas entered the design fields through popular reception, and how this influenced the development of modern architecture. Because of later contamination by the Nazis, this important field has unfortunately been neglected by historians.
