At the age of 93, noted Italian-born architect and visionary Paolo Soleri died today of natural causes at his Arizona home, Cosanti. Known for coining the word ‘arcology‘ –a combination of ‘architecture’ and ‘ecology’– Soleri’s most visible arcological project is Arcosanti, an experimental dwelling in the Arizona desert. The Cosanti Foundation has posted his full obituary.
