Jeff Stein heads the Cosanti Foundation, the organization that oversees Arcosanti. Arcosanti is an urban laboratory focused on innovative design, community and environmental accountability. The goal of Arcosanti is to actively pursue lean alternatives to urban sprawl based on Paolo Soleri's theory of compact city design. Built by over 7,000 volunteers since the commencement of the project in 1970, Arcosanti provides various mixed-use buildings and public spaces where people live, work, visit and participate in educational and cultural programs.
