Landscaping coordinator Ron Chandler invited staff, volunteers and workshop participants to an Open House event with a big barbeque in the courtyard between the cubes.
In the chair right by the fire, Paolo Soleri graced the event with his presence.
Ron remodeled a series of three cubes and added a cube-size addition with french doors, facing the Agua Fria riverbed.
Each cube is a 8 foot by 8 foot living unit, the first living quarters built at Arcosanti in 1970, before any work began on the structures on the mesa.
Ron even installed a fishtank and a little kitchen, unheard of luxury in a cube.
After the barbeque and house viewing, the group settled around the fire for some poetry and musical performance.
