Under development by the Cosanti Foundation since 1970, Arcosanti is the urban laboratory testing the concept of Arcology to reorganize the sprawling urban landscape into dense, integrated, three dimensional cities to efficiently support the diverse activities that sustain human culture. Arcosanti conducts a wide range of activities. Residents, workshop participants, students and visitors work and live in extraordinary architecture surrounded by the striking natural environment and engage in fostering the activities of the Cosanti Foundation.
