Arcosanti- An Urban Laboratory Just 35 Miles From Prescott - 12/17/10 06:56 PM
I visited Arcosanti which is just 35 miles east of Prescott AZ and I was amazed. This is trully one of the best examples I can think of for future urban planning. Arcosanti was started in 1970. It's ideas and principles were way ahead of its time. Now, when the nation is actually considering things like planning green and low environmental impact structures, Arcosanti makes more sense than ever. Arcosante demonstrates how 5000 people would be able to live in harmony with minimal impact upon the eaith. When complete, its structures will only occupy 25 acres! Go vosit and be amazed.
