SILT 1: It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood. A bucket brigade is on a mission walking through camp towards the Agua Fria riverbed. [Photo & Text: sa]

Paolo Soleri is leading the way into the riverbed to dig for just the right consistency of silt. [Photo & Text: sa]

There are some good silt repositories right across the river from camp. [Photo & Text: sa]

Most of the crew turned up for this occasion. [Photo & Text: sa]

While all this is going on, the kids are building a dam in the almost dry riverbed. [Photo & Text: sa]

The silt is taken up to the construction site and unloaded. [Photo & Text: sa]

The next four pre-cast panels to be cast, with the help of this silt, will be the roof panels for the four lightscoops. This is a small mock-up of the desired shape. To be continued. [Photo & Text: sa]
