We'd never heard of Paolo Soleri or Cosanti until some Phoenix friends took us there for a visit. This bizarre architectural compound is tucked away in an upscale Paradise Valley neighborhood. I don't know how the neighbors feel about this space-age structure in their midst,...More

Just made it to the last hour of the annual sale! Love picking up gifts during this event; especially for our out of town guests! A must for tourists who do not have time to travel to Acrosanti!

The Cosanti Foundation is unique in a number of ways: the architecture, the artwork (cast bronze and ceramic bells) and the working foundry where the bells are cast. It's an interesting stop that has a great back story. Definately worth a visit!

Do you mean, can you walk around the display areas with your dog rather then leaving him/her in the car? Well, then I would say yes. Most of the displays are open areas and people just wander about.
