Britannica Concise

Italian-U.S. architect. After receiving a doctorate from Turin Polytechnic, he worked under F. L. Wright in Arizona (1947-49). Beginning in 1959, he drew up plans for a series of compact urban centers that would extend vertically into space rather than horizontally along the ground. These megastructures were designed to conserve energy and resources (partly through reliance on solar energy and elimination of automobile use within the city), preserve natural surroundings, and condense human activities within integrated total environments. In 1970 he began constructing a prototype town called Arcosanti, for a population of 7,000, between Phoenix and Flagstaff, Ariz. The work, by students and volunteers, is still in progress.
