Paolo Soleri

Born in Italy in 1919, Paolo Soleri has dedicated his lifelong work to experimentation in urban planning. Settling in Scottsdale, Arizona in 1956, Soleri established the Cosanti Foundation and began designing Arcosanti, a prototype town for 5,000 residents based on his concept of “Arcology”—architecture in accordance with ecology. Soleri’s work has been included in worldwide exhibitions, and he has received fellowships from the Graham and Guggenheim Foundations as well as three honorary doctorates and numerous international medals.
