It will be shown from January 16, 2008, to April 19, 2009 in BABEL CANYON was designed for a population 250,000 in an arcology about 800 meters high [according to Paolo Soleri’s book “City in the image of Man”]. Designed on a curve-square plan of about 1 kilometer per side, Babel Canyon is like a series of skyscrapers perforating three pyramidal and multifunctional configurations. The lower one covers the servicing entrails of the city. The other two are the containers of residential and public functions. As for many of the arcologies there is a very large light-and-air well running on the vertical axis. The sloping configurations produce a variety of spatial systems of inward or outward character. The environmental characters would be very diverse, with almost opposite rhythms of space, light and dimension. This model was built by Soleri and students at Cosanti in 1969, and has been part of many exhibitions. [Photo & text: from City in the image of Man] A new crate had to be built out of certified wood. Staff from CRATERS AND FREIGHTERS in Phoenix came and build the crate on site, packed and cushioned the model for overland transport. The model was picked up by US ART, a transport company that specializes in transportation of exhibitions. We hope to have photos once the exhibition opens and will report more on this at that time.
