Paolo Soleri is now 91 years old and he still collects many young people around him. He pays constant attention to man, the apex, as for Theilard de Chardin, of the evolution of the cosmos towards the point Omega. He considers that he has developed a sort of ‘musical instrument’ to obtain an ‘urban effect’ which solves the problem of the current ecological unease and disaster. He acquired his degree in architecture in Turin and located his activities in the Arizona desert with Wright at Taliesin West in 1955, a workshop from which ‘archology’ (architecture + ecology) was developed. Cosanti, with its earth houses, was started by him in 1955 as an urban morphology which co-operates with the natural environment by means of the potential cosmic generators of renewable energy. From 1960 onwards, with Mesa City he conceived of an entire city as organic, a phenomenon based on his own biological balance. Many ‘archologies were to follow’.
