In brief, the five-week Arcosanti Workshop is a process of experiential learning designed around Paolo Soleri’s ideas. Through lectures, discussions, and tours, workshop participants gain a solid understanding of Arcosanti and Arcology Theory. Working with the construction crew offers an overview of the process required for building and maintaining the Arcosanti structures as well as basic construction skills. Mentoring with different departments offers a variety of educational opportunities. Finally, the experience of living and working in this unique environment is a valuable learning experience in itself.
