Dorothée and Mark visit Arcosanti, an urban experiment in sustainable living located in Arizona. The community is a project of architect Paolo Soleri whose concept of arcology describes a mixture of architecture and ecology working as one integral process to produce new urban habitats. The community currently has an experimental greenhouse where they're testing to see which plants they can grow in the climate. So far organic lettuce, tomatoes and various herbs are productive. They also have edible plants on the grounds including olive and apricot trees.
