    From our local newspaper:

    http://www.azcentral.com/community/...isionary-architect-paolo-soleri-has-died.html

    He was a direct disciple of Frank Lloyd Wright.

    I had the pleasure of visiting Arcosanti- the small 'town' created by Soleri where people live where they work. Soleri bells are works of art, and are very expensive.

    I am ashamed to say that I have still not seen the Soleri museum/shop in Scottsdale; I planned on it many times, but did not make it. Now would be a good time.

    I hope his vision, and plans, continue to be realized.
    RIP
