A group of architects, designers, landscape architects and artists organized meetings on architecture, nature and art in the 1970s and 1980s. The group searched for a new organic and ecological approach to architecture, inspired by anthroposophy and with ideas about the coherence of the arts as a design tool. The questions that this group raised fifty years ago are still relevant. They were looking for a new design approach that could respond to concerns about the environment and the lack of connection between people and nature.
This mini symposium is part of a series of heritage meetings organized by Het Nieuwe Instituut in which the development and history of organic architecture in the Netherlands are mapped out and explained. This symposium is on the one hand about unraveling and dissecting a past and at the same time the question of how this history can shed light on the issues of today.
