Deutsche Binnen-Kolonisation

Berlin-Friedenau Deutscher Kommunal-Verlag G.M.B.H 1926

196pp illustrated with b/w plates and line ills. Green decorated wrappers. Wrappers a little worn at the head of the spine. The book is a revision of an earlier and smaller text the author wrote in 1918. Migge trained in horticulture and was a landscape architect and author. His work revolved around the urban housing construction and urban planning through design of schemes influenced by the garden city movement of the early 20th century. He was particularly interested in the use of the garden space as an extension to the house and in making this a useable space. Projects included public parks, private gardens. He joined the German Werkbund and worked in collaboration, amongst others with Ernest May and Bruno Taut and worked in Frankfurt on the Projekt Neues Frankfurt. Signed and dated by the author on the inside of the wrapper 28.8.26. Hard to find original edition of this book. The early chapters are a manifesto on the role of horticulture in city development thus in a way very upto date.
