The Ecosa Institute was founded in 1996 by Arcosanti alumnus Tony Brown. His dedication to issues of sustainability and ecological design developed after joining Paolo Soleri’s Cosanti Foundation where he worked for thirteen years on conceptual designs for a new vision of urban settlements. He worked with Soleri as architect in residence supervising both design and construction. Tony Brown: ‘It became clear that only a design education that is comprehensive, interactive, and innovative can bring any understanding of a subject as complex as ecological design’.Alumnus Tony Brown brought his latest group of students to visit Arcosanti on December 6. 2012.
The Ecosa Institute is now an officially sponsored program of Prescott College.
