Soleri Bell Tree

At Paolo Soleri's residence and art studio, he has this wonderful bell tree.

Soleri's architectural style and use of concrete is innovative. The creation of this concrete tree to serve as a large bell stand is visually interesting and functional.

Soleri is known for the ceramic and bronze bells he and his studio create and sell. Monies earned are used to continue research and construction of Arcosanti and other Soleri projects.

Scottsdale has planned a Soleri designed pedestrian bridge that will be built near the Scottsdale Waterfront. We can't wait to see how the new bridge looks.
