Fritsch, Theodor (1853–1933). German theorist. In 1896 he published Die Stadt der Zukunft (The Town of the Future) which anticipated by two years Ebenezer Howard's Tomorrow: a Peaceful Path to Real Reform. However, half of the circular plan of Fritsch's design was given over to parkland, and he proposed large living-quarters with communal gardens, underground services, and industrial estates.
