? Archive Director Tomiaki Tamura looks through a series of beautiful watercolor drawings. He identified several series of drawings as part of some of Soleri’s school projects already housed in the archives. Most of the drawings are from Paolo Soleri’s time at the Polytechnico in Torino, Italy, where he received his degree in 1946.


? Archives crew set up a camera and filmed Soleri’s reminiscence over his early efforts. Tomiaki interviewed Paolo about specific items, especially a Sketchbook from those school years.
