The father of the concept of the arcology has passed away. One of the more interesting architectural minds of the past century, Paolo Soleri. I first encountered his work in Urban Structures of the Future by Justus Dahinden, and then in various science fiction works such as Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle's Oath of Fealty.

Addendum: Obituary of Paolo Soleri. A Flickr stream of Acrosanti.
