Agriculture and food production has not been a central issue in the discourse of contemporary architecture and urbanism. In spite of this, it is possible to recover some interesting projects of architects who made serious efforts to reverse the disconnection between rural and urban worlds. Professionals who looked for a direct relationship between house functionality and food production. Some periods of crisis, like the interwar period in Central Europe, created an ideal atmosphere for the appearance of proposals that sought the food self-sufficiency of its inhabitants. This article aims to contextualize the role of the landscape architect Leberecht Migge and his connections with some architects in the creation of the modern Siedlungen. Migge's labor was eclipsed by the great masters of the Modern Movement with whom he worked, but he played a key role in the success of productive housing. His theoretical work and his designs stand out as the most effective and relevant modern Siedlungen where agriculture is fully integrated with housing. This trend ran parallel to the most groundbreaking proposals of the Modern Movement, but only for an ephemeral journey. Once the crisis that allowed its flowering was overcome, these same architects forgot self-sufficiency forever as an objective of their interventions.
