Arcosanti


The Washington Post visits the famous architectural something-or-other.

Arcosanti was started in the 1970s by Italian architect Paolo Soleri, a spitfire who seeks an alternative to a car-dominant, hyper-consumerist society….

“Arcosanti is both a success and a failure….”

The property sits on 15 cactus-strewn acres.

So that’s how they do it! Eco-living is determined by how many cactus you have strewn about! Good enough for me. No need to read the rest of the article.

I did like the correction appended to the article.

A previous version of this article incorrectly said that Steven Spielberg was inspired by the architecture of Arcosanti. It was George Lucas’s team that drew inspiration from the desert designs for the “Star Wars” movies.

Nice.
