16/30 A City

Prompt: write about a city.
 
Paolo Soleri taught architecture at ASU, but his real classroom was Arcosanti: "an experimental town and molten bronze bell casting community" a few hours from Phoenix, which was supposed to have 5,000 residents by now, demonstrating "lean" city living in high-density complexes that combined super-efficient usage of space with stylized, naturalistic exteriors that made each building part of the landscape. Taken from Boing Boing


 
Arcosanti
There is a city in the mind,
where silt dances on desert winds
and bronze blends with molten suns
cooled by streams of fire.
