N.Y.Times Article Updates Arcosanti

Allison saw an article in the New York Times the other day
 on Paulo Soleri and Arcosanti,
(from which the above photo is taken).

discusses the handing off of the reigns from Soleri to Jeff Stein as president
 of the parent Cosanti Foundation,
and includes a good slideshow.

This is a big shift for Arcosanti, 
which represents both alternative building and lifestyle,
take a look and let's wish them luck.

For more on my posts on Soleri, Arcosanti, and Cosanti
please click on Paulo Soleri under LABELS on the right side bar.

In the next post we will get back to Maria Eggleston.
