ARCOSANTI SOLAR GREENHOUSE is part of the S.O.D. UNIT [Soleri Office and Drafting Unit]. It is the south-east cornerstone of the East Crescent Complex at Arcosanti. Constructed during 1978-79, it houses administrative offices, the planning and drafting department, and Paolo Soleri’s apartment at Arcosanti. There is also a large meeting room and the greenhouse.
