? [from upper left] Construction staff Brendan Maloney and workshop participant John Foster install weld plates on the side of the steel forms. These forms are prepared for a series of silt-cast concrete wall panels.
The silt-cast panels will surround the walk-in refrigerator and recycling area behind the bakery, and upgrade the general entrance to the Arcosanti site.
The construction manager for this project is David Tollas [with light hat], who has been part of the Cosanti Foundation staff for many years. David instructs workshop participant Jeffrey Meylan and volunteer Alfonso Elia.


? After the interior floor of the form is covered with a layer of silt, the construction crew installs a custom built frame of steel reinforcement bars. Workshop participant Bernardo Claus ties the steel bars to the connections on the inside of the frame. This report will continue.
