It was there that he landed and lived the following year at Arcosanti (Arco), an experimental community an hour north of Phoenix. Founded by Italian architect Paolo Soleri in 1970, Arco is described as a prototype dense urban system designed to produce its own food and energy. Holman spent his time there digging around Arco’s four decades worth of construction debris, scrap metal, scaffolding and old cars. It was there that Holman would weld, hammer and construct furniture using what others may consider to be waste. Disposable culture? Not on Holman’s watch.
