Event Details

This cinéma vérité style documentary presents a fresh look at the architect, craftsman, urban theorist, and philosopher Paolo Soleri. An early Graham grantee, Soleri is well known as the creator of Arcosanti, an experimental settlement north of Phoenix, intended to be an alternative to urban sprawl. Following the screening, please join us for a Q&A with co-producer Roger Tomalty and filmmaker Aimee Madsen, and a reception in the Madlener House outdoor courtyard.


Currently working as an independent filmmaker and still photographer, Aimee Madsen has over 20 years of experience shooting stills for magazine and book publications, some of which include Native Peoples, Arizona Highways, Worth, Sunset, Outdoor Photographer, New Mexico Magazine, Phoenix Magazine, and Transitions Abroad. In addition, she has shot for publisher NorthWord Press and the internationally renowned image library Gamma Liaison.


Roger Tomalty worked closely with Soleri in both an architectural design and construction capacity since 1970.  He studied architecture at Syracuse University and holds a Masters degree from Arizona State University in Physical Geography, with an emphasis on radiation-budget climatology. Tomalty served as construction supervisor and site coordinator of the Arcosanti project in the 1970’s, has taught and lectured extensively on Soleri and the Arcosanti project in the United States, Europe, and Asia and conducts workshops on earth casting techniques worldwide. A member of the Board of Trustees of the Cosanti Foundation, he oversees the Cosanti site in Scottsdale where he worked with Soleri to produce, exhibit, and market custom bell assemblies. His primary interest is for the Cosanti Foundation and Arcosanti to continue to explore and demonstrate the interaction of the built and natural environments in ways that integrate food production, water conservation, and flow energy resources with habitat.

This event is co-presented by the Graham Foundation and the Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago.
