The truck has arrived and it takes a strong crew to maneuver the giant crates up the hill through the East Crescent keystone.

Angus and Janette, builders of the crates. Janette and Phillip have to lean on the crate to counter balance its weight, while the loading platform is raised.

Boston Architectural Center exhibition – THE ARCHITECTURE OF PLACE, THE PLACE OF ARCHITECTURE – opens on April 1. 2006. On Thursday, April 20, 2006 Paolo Soleri will deliver the Boston Architectural Centers 2006 Cascieri 14 Lectureship in the Humanities. From the exhibition announcement: Architect Paolo Soleri began writing, drawing and building in the Arizona desert years before the idea of sustainability became part of our shared vocabulary. Now his concrete urban design proposals are as fundamental to that idea as survival itself. ARCOLOGY: Soleri’s understanding of the profound connection between Architecture and Ecology is the result of the research into urban form that has occupied him and hundreds of his students over nearly half a century. Yet for Soleri, How is as important as What. This exhibition of his projects includes the work of BAC students exploring siltcast construction techniques, for which Paolo Soleri was awarded the AIA Gold Medal for Craftsmanship.
