Founded in 1965, the Cosanti Foundation’s mission is to inspire a reimagined urbanism that builds resilient and equitable communities sustainably integrated with the natural world. We pursue this mission at our two flagship locations, Cosanti and Arcosanti, as well as with projects, programs, and partnerships that hundreds of thousands of people have participated in over the years. Through ongoing experimentation with the theory of arcology (a combination of the words architecture and ecology), we seek to demonstrate a kind of construction and community that provides an alternative to sprawl development and helps solve modern social and environmental crises.
