The Arcosanti construction department poured the concrete footing for a new tensile shade, donated by alumnus Previous workshops excavated the site and placed the formwork for the concrete.
The concrete was mixed and brought to the remote site by truck, where it was carried up the hillside by a bucket brigade.
Work began early in the morning on October 24th and was completed in several hours.
Members of Ceramics, Planning, and the October 6th workshop assisted in the process. The SUNAMI shade will be the centerpiece of a planned rest area on the Arcosanti visitor trail.
