Conversations with Paolo Soleri, the newest volume in our popular Conversations series, offers timely thinking in response to our global environmental crisis. Drawn from the visionary architect's personal notebooks and sketchbooks, Soleri's most recently (2004--2009) documented ideas respond to contemporary issues such as climate change, oil dependence, suburban sprawl, and overconsumption. Soleri outlines a detailed proposal for urban reformulation and renewal, appealing to architects, urban planners, environmentalists, urban historians, philosophers, ethicists, and anthropologists. Two essays and a new interview covering the breadth of Soleri's career round out this accessible introduction, offering a useful overview of Soleri's work.


Lissa McCullough is Los Angeles'based independent scholar trained in religious studies and philosophy who has worked with Paolo Soleri as his editor since 2004.
