The key words to Paolo Soleri’s philosophy are “leanness” and “elegant frugality.” Arcosanti follows the motto of “doing more with less”, by using less energy, less pollution, less waste of space and material, we are creating a more efficient community. This is an idea that embraces not only the architecture, but also the human aspects of everyday life.  Arcosanti attracts not only those interested in studying architecture, but also people who want to learn about urban design, solar panels, or simply to see what it would be like to live in an ecology and design focused community.
