The theme that my partner here at U of A, and I will be working with
for the rest of this semester focuses upon the issue of architecture
based upon the landscape. In a sense, we will be approaching the same
idea that Soleri approached in Arcosanti. That is, we are exploring
arcology. Instead of using this as a principal of design like Soleri,
we will be analyzing architecture based upon the aesthetics of the
environment.
One of our focal points of this issue is Sedona. It is one of our
cities here in Arizona that strictly abides to specific codes when
building new structures. THis is how we became aware of the issue.
Although this will be part of our development, it is not our general
approach to the topic. We are starting by looking at the following:

Arcosanti
-Paolo Soleri
-1970-1992
-emphasis of steele and concrete
- THe goal of this is to create an utopian structure that runs
self-sufficiently. It has all the necessities of life that include
living quarters, gardens, etc.

Chapel of the Holy Cross
-THis is a church that was built into the rock that surrounds
Sedona. IT is a pale subtle gray that does offset itself from the
environment, but does not disturb it. THe structure is dominated by the
Cross that welcomes the visitors, and it covers the entire phisod of the
church. Around the cross are windows that when looking from inside of
the church, one can see Sedona.

Taliesin Falling Water
-Frank Lloyd Wright -Frank Llyod Wright
-c. 1940 -1935-1939
Pennsylvania

Frank Lloyd Wright's structures here both emphasize building in
nature without disturbing it. They have a strong horizontal emphasis,
and both use natural stones and woods in its construction. Wright
accentuates the natural surroundings in his architectural design.

These are the pieces that we are generating our theme upon. If anyone
has any suggestions, please don't hesitate to respond.
