Urban experiment on a grand scale…

From the imagination of architect Paolo Soleri, Arcosanti rises from the Arizona desert north of Phoenix. The pictured massive concrete vaults are a central feature of the experimental Arcosanti complex. Soleri’s known for developing Arcology, an architectural concept of building hyperstructures that minimize human impact and are self-sufficient and sustainable.

Canon 5D, 3 images, +/-2 AEB, tripod mount, processed in Aperture and photomatix.

I’m a Miami, Florida-based photographer. I and my camera try to get out as often as possible. These images are the result. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

If you like my images enough to buy them, please know that the income goes back into the art. Thanks for visiting!
