I finally visited Arcosanti. For those who do not know:

Arcosanti is an urban laboratory focused on innovative design, community, and environmental accountability.

 

Our goal is to actively pursue lean alternatives to urban sprawl based on Paolo Soleri’s theory of compact city
design, Arcology (architecture + ecology).

 

Built by over 7,000 volunteers since the commencement of the project in 1970, Arcosanti provides various mixed-use buildings and public spaces where people live, work, visit, and participate in educational and cultural programs.
