In June of 2017, we went to Arcosanti — Architecture + Ecology 65 miles north of Phoenix. Arcosanti is an urban laboratory focused on innovative design, environmental accountability, and experiential learning developed by Italian born architect, urban theorist, craftsman artist, and philosopher, Paolo Soleri, in 1970. This was 15 years after establishing his Architectural Design and Craft Studios, Cosanti, in 1955 in Paradise Valley.

While we were at Arcosanti, we bought a bell. Then during the monsoon of 2019, a strong gust of wind blew down the bell on our patio. Since then, we have been looking for an opportunity to purchase another bell.

We had planned to be in Phoenix on February 28th to see Diunna Greenleaf at the Rhythm Room. So, we left Tuscon early enough to visit the Cosanti Studios and go to dinner in Scottsdale before an evening of live Blues music. We now have a replacement for our original bell.
