Our first stop in the Davis ark was, appropriately enough, Arcosanti. Founded by architect Paolo Soleri, now in his nineties, Arcosanti is an exercise in community building that combines architecture with ecology, located in the Arizona desert.
We sampled the baked goods at the cafe, inspected Soleri bells, and went on the tour. Under some of the big arcs I photographed the wall painting shown, slightly worse (or better) for weather. Then Nicky got tired of the tour, and we turned around and got back in the ark.
