Arcosanti - An Urban Laboratory in the Arizona Desert.


We continue our report from Monday, 9/12/2011.

The photos show part of the sequence of the model building and possibly a future construction sequence of a module of Lean Linear City.

One module is 200m in length and width. It is articulated into three masses and each mass contains its own horizontal and vertical movement system that becomes its structural system.

As a vertical shaft structure is lifted up by crane, a building mass is simultaneously shaping as seen in the photo.

"Lean Linear City: Arterial Arcology" is a publication upcoming at the end of September, by Paolo Soleri in collaboration with the Arcosanti Planning Department. The book will cover the Lean Linear City proposal by Soleri and the philosophy behind it.
