Cosanti's "Cat-Cast" Skylights Get An Upgrade

Built in 1965, Cosanti's "Cat-Cast" building⎯named for a small Caterpillar tractor that was used to rough cut and shape the earth pile on which the concrete roof was cast⎯houses several private sleeping rooms, a bathroom and shower, a below ground level library, living room, kitchen and dining room.

Ground floor skylights along the building's entryway let natural light into the lower gathering room of the residence and provide a unique birds-eye perspective of its interior. While these skylights are not part of the public walking path, visitors on the guided tour will notice the colorful, custom-cut plexiglass panes that have been newly-installed as part of our ongoing effort to maintain, preserve, and improve upon these awe-inspiring spaces at Cosanti.

With our upgraded skylights are in place, we plan to transform the gutters around each panel into a rosemary planter⎯both for the pleasant scent and to keep mosquitos away as the summer months quickly approach.

Come see the progress for yourself by booking a guided tour at Cosanti, offered Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 9:15am and 11:15am.

Custom Tiles For Camp At Arcosanti

We're excited to share a sneak peek into a special project that the Cosanti Ceramics team has been working on this spring. These custom number tile plates will identify and adorn the concrete cubes that serve as rustic housing down by the Agua Fria River at our sister site, Arcosanti, in Mayer, Arizona.

These one-of-a-kind ceramics are just one piece of a larger project to restore, renovate, and upgrade the beloved camp living quarters that have served the residents and workshoppers at Arcosanti since they first broke ground in the early 1970's.
