The model in the foreground is the “SINGLE CANTILEVER BRIDGE”, silt-cast plaster, carved and cast by Paolo Soleri in the early 1960’s.

Here is the Smoca team, from left Smoca registrar Pat Evans, intern Sarah and curator Claire Carter.

Workshoppers Felipe Fierro, Laura Villa Baroncelli and Ryan David were on their fieldtrip to Cosanti and helped to unpack some of the old models.
