The studios also engage in developing educational programs (workshops, seminar, lectures, demonstrations, events, etc.) and projects (commissions, collaborations, research, websites, films, print and electronic publications, presentations, expos, exhibitions, etc.), related to the activities of the Soleri Studios.

Ongoing use of both Cosanti and Arcosanti facilities involves aging  and new structures many of which employed Soleri-signatured construction techniques such as siltcasting resulted in a demonstration of creative resourcefulness. The maintenance and developing a plan for preservation of those buildings require careful assessment of current physical and programmatic conditions and their anticipated lifecycle.
