Arcosanti - An Urban Laboratory in the Arizona Desert.


We continue our report from 9/12 and 9/14/2011.

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

The three masses are interconnected to each other by the Terrea level that is on the 10th floor of the module. This level functions as a public park, local transportation and utility corridor, and a structural bridge that connects each module to another.

Each module can also generate certain portion of its energy demand by utilizing solar and wind technology. On the slanted top of each mass, photovoltaic panels will be installed while the vertical structure will hold wind turbines.

Lean Linear City also provides agriculture in it's vicinity. This is represented by a sloped greenhouse that is shown on the base of the model.
