Arcosanti

UPDATED: August 18, 2006

 

Arcosanti is a self-contained experimental town that began construction in 1970 in central Arizona, 70 miles (110 km) north of Phoenix, at 3420′34.72″N, 11206′05.93″W (elev. 3732 feet/1130 meters). Paolo Soleri, using a concept he calls arcology (a portmanteau of architecture and ecology), designed the town to demonstrate ways urban conditions could be improved while minimizing the destructive impact on the earth.
