Throughout January, the Arcosanti Archives Department is preparing for the safe return and storage of all the pieces currently on display in “Repositioning Paolo Soleri: The City is Nature” at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art. If you haven’t the chance to see the retrospective yet, the show will be on display until January 28th. Find out more about the show and SMOCA online.
All the models have custom made crates and storage materials which are being prepared to go in our two storage containers on the Arcosanti site. This week, archives worked with the construction and maintenance departments to prepare the storage crates and containers.
The team moved crates from Unit 7 to the storage containers, cleaned up Unit 7 (the Construction shed attached to Fergusons) and made some space to prepare for models returning to Arcosanti.
