Arcosanti

Feature

Saturday, May 22, 2004

In 1970 the visionary Italian architect Paolo Soleri and a team of volunteers broke ground on the city of the future. It was called Arcosanti, and it was intended to change how we Americans live. In Soleri's dream, Arcosantians would sleep and work in 15 story towers on an area no larger than a baseball field, in the middle of the Arizona desert. Tamar Brott finds Soleri’s plans far from fulfilled, but creativity is springing up in his desert settlement.
