  • Cosanti FoundationCosanti Foundation Scottsdale, Arizona
    Paolo Soleri is an Italian-American visionary architect that made a life long commitment to research and experimentation in design and town planning, starting the Arcosanti and Cosanti Foundation. He is a distinguished speaker at the College of Architecture at Arizona State University and a National Design Award recipient in 2006. He was born in Turin, Italy and came to this country after earning his laurea, or master of sciences degree, in 1947 and spent 18 months studying with Frank Lloyd Wright at Taliesin West in Arizona and Taliesin in Spring Green, Wisconsin. Also during this period he got international fame for a bridge design that was shown at the Museum of Modern Art. Going back to Italy in 1950, he was commissioned to build a huge ceramics factory, allowing him to learn the many processes involved in the ceramic industry which led to his award-winning designs of bronze and ceramic windbells and siltcast architectural structures. For more than 30 years, the proceeds from his windbells have given funds to construct various venues that test his theoretical work. The foundation's main project is Arcosanti, a planned community of 5000 people that was designed by Soleri and has been under construction since 1970. It is located near Cordes Junction, some 70 miles north of Phoenix, based on his concept of Arcology, architecture coherent with ecology. Arcology is hyperdense cities designed to maximize human interaction; maximize access to shared cost-effective infrastructure like sewers and water; minimize the usage of energy , raw materials and land; reduce waste and environmental pollution; and encourage interaction with the surrounding nature. Arcosanti is the prototype of desert arcology, and since the beginning, more than 6000 people have participated in the construction project with an internationally affiliated group called the Arcosanti Arcology Network, with about 5% completion.
