The picture above is the view from the access road leading up to the entrance. What's interesting is how the entire town blends into the landscape, which was the entire point of Soleri's concept.
This is the Ceramics Apse where wind bells and tiles are produced. Besides the beauty of the architecture and products made here the purpose behind its design is quite worth the visit. Again, more information can be found here.

That was my little visit to Arcosanti. It's an interesting place for sure and I'm really glad I got the chance to check it out. I'm excited for the completion of the town and to see if all the ideas will be realized and executed. A self sustaining town that doesn't destroy the natural surrounding is something I can stand behind. Yay Earth!
