I fell in love with Paulo Soleri's work during a sustainable design class I took in college. During one lecture, I caught a glimpse of the rust red arches of Arcosanti. Soleri's dream for the project was to build a fully functioning, environmentally responsible city that found a balance between architecture and ecology. Here you'll find the origin of my love of desert landscapes, sustainable communities, and the cultivation of space.
Many years later, I visited Arcosanti for a small music and arts festival called FORM, and snapped a handful of portraits of friends in different parts of Soleri's desert utopia.
