“ARCOSANTI”

FALL/WINTER 2016

“ARCOLOGY RECOGNIZES THE NECESSITY FOR RADICAL REORGANIZATION OF SPRAWLING URBAN LANDSCAPE INTO DENSE, INTEGRATED, THREE-DIMENSIONAL CITIES IN ORDER TO SUPPORT THE COMPLEX ACTIVITIES THAT SUSTAIN HUMAN CULTURE.” - PAOLO SOLERI / ARCHITECT /VISIONARY FOUNDER ARCOSANTI

“ARCOSANTI’S MESSAGE IS THAT “LIFE IS IN THE THICK OF THINGS”. WE ARE NOT FUTURISTS. WE ARE NOT
TRYING TO PREDICT THE FUTURE WITH THIS PROJECT; WE ARE TRYING TO DESIGN IT OUT OF WHAT WE KNOW
ABOUT THE PRESENT. LET ME JUST CONFIDE WHAT WE DO KNOW: THE CURRENT GLOBAL TSUNAMI OF
CONSUMPTION – OF OBJECTS, MATERIALS, ENERGY AND LAND – IS LEADING TO DISASTER, BOTH ECONOMIC
AND ECOLOGICAL. FOR THE WHOLE WORLD’S POPULATION – 7 BILLION PEOPLE – TO LIVE THE WAY
314 MILLION AMERICANS LIVE NOW, WOULD TAKE 5 EARTHS TO SUPPORT. THIS IS NO JOKE.”
