Our first workshop of 2010 began Sunday, January 31st with seminar week. This week consists of a series of lectures about Arcosanti’s history and tours of the individual departments on site. Also, the new group participates in their first work opportunities for the project.
Here the workshop peers over our current construction project, the heat duct tunnel and greenhouse. The tunnel extends from the S.O.D. Building to the greenhouse just above the Greenhouse Guest Rooms.
Looking over construction drawings, the workshop gains a clearer understanding of the project and our construction department. Preparations are underway for the next large concrete pour.
To assist the landscaping department, the workshop helped to finalize the landscaping around the new pedestrian ramp.
They helped to set concrete pavers behind the Ceramics Apse.
And they expressed some creativity in the Silt-Cast workshop. This is an opportunity to work artistically with silt and create a plaster tile to take home.
