Arcosanti, born in 1970, continues to evolve as an experiential learning center, walk-through demonstration of how to pursue efficient 'lean' alternatives to urban sprawl. Conceived by Paolo Soleri'sconcept of compact city design, ARCOLOGY(ARChitecture and ecOLOGY) saves resources and improves quality of life for all.
Ever the thinker, Miuccia Prada launches Miu Miu's Spring/Summer 2018 'Return to Arcosanti' ad campaign featuring actor Elle Fanning and top models Adwoa Aboah, Cameron Russell, Edie Campbell, Faith Lynch, Olivia Anakwe, Oumie Jammeh and Rianne Van Rompaey. Styled by Katie Grand with creative direction by Giovanni Bianco, photographer Alasdair McLellan captures this utopian future 70 miles north of Phoenix.
Led by the Cosanti Foundation Board of Directors, I note rather sadly that only one woman serves on this board of nine talented creatives envisioning our collective future.
