Took a little road trip with my cousin and husband to Phoenix this weekend. Road trip must haves include Twizzlers NIBS (not Red Vines, those are for seeing movies in theaters) and a variety of things to listen to besides one Strokes album (problematic when your phone goes kaput). But! Good views, good times.
We also visited Arcosanti, an experimental town and community modeled off of architect Paolo Soleri's concept of Arcology, a way to improve urban conditions while minimizing our impact on the Earth. It was a beautiful concept and space, and reminded me so much of the urban centers we studied in Copenhagen, which all centered on the idea that urban centers are the ideal place for people to work and live because they provide community and encourage mobility.
