Tours & Corporate Events: Scottsdale, Arizona | Phoenix, Arizona
VIP Tour of Arcosanti
Experience a one-of-a-kind intimate guided tour of Arcosanti, Paolo Soleri’s prototype town designed to house 5,000 people. Located in Cordes Junction, just 65 miles north of Scottsdale, the project is based on Soleri’s concept of “arcology,” architecture coherent with ecology. You will have behind the scenes access into the Arcosanti archive which contains work by the renowned Italian architect that is not on display for the public, have a private tour of the grounds with access to restricted areas and enjoy a fabulous, freshly prepared lunch at the Arcosanti Café.
The tour ends on the scenic Downtown Waterfront with a talk at the Soleri Bridge and Plaza.
Further customize your Arcosanti tour with an extended public art tour upon your return to Scottsdale or a visit to the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art for a private tour of their current exhibitions.
