Last weekend I had an occasion to visit Arcosanti for a new music concert by the California E.A.R. Unit. Arcosanti is an arcology (architecture + ecology) concept/project by renowned architect (and Scottsdale resident) Paolo Soleri located in the high Arizona desert just off of the Cordes Junction exit on I-17.

The complex itself, situated on the edge of a canyon created by the Agua Fria river, is beautifully built and blends in with the surrounding desert landscape. We drove up to Arcosanti through a thunderstorm and by the time we arrived there was a beautiful rainbow over the canyon which was followed with a stunning sunset. I got some great shots of the landscape at Arcosanti which I’ve uploaded to an Arcosanti Flickr set (or see all Arcosanti tagged pics on Flickr).
