With this architecture flow isn’t about imitation of natural forms. Much more it comes to represent the people as a living, evolving beings in the process of design.
The architecture is understood as an expression of society and culture. The anthroposophical architecture complements this claim and adds that the reverse process plays an important role. This means that the buildings have an impact on the people and its development. The man is both physical, both psychic and mental beings understood.
