Paolo Soleri, architect who founded Arcosanti, dies in Arizona

The town of Arcosanti as seen at sunrise; the community was founded in 1970 by Italian-born Phoenix architect Paolo Soleri, who envisioned it as the eventual home of 7,000 people. As a prototype community to have people close to their work and interacting rather than driving. This community is located on Interstate 17 to exit 262 at Cordes Junction, 65 miles north of Phoenix.
