Arizona Colony Struggles To Build 'Arcology'
Seventy miles north of Phoenix, renegade architect Paolo Soleri has assembled just part of his dream community of 5,000 due to lack of funds. Calling his project an 'arcology,' a combination of architecture and ecology, Soleri hopes to prove that the typical suburban house is not only a poor use of land but "the single most consumptive and segregational habitat that we can conceive." Arcosanti, the town, is urbanism taken to its extreme.
