In central Arizona there exists an experimental town called Arcosanti. It's built on the principles of arcology, which combines architecture and ecology to envision a city that works in tandem with the Earth's resources. In this short documentary, The Atlantic goes inside this distinctive urban space to understand how Arcosanti plans to reconstruct how humans envision cities.

Like paintings and sculptures, buildings can be beautiful works of art.

We asked architects to tell us the one building that's a game-changer for building design, inspired them to become architects, or that they simply find stunning.

Here are 19 of the most breathtaking buildings in the world, according to people who build them for a living.

Architect McBride Charles Ryan mixed his field of predilection with sculpture for his new project Klein Bottle House, that he built in Rye, Australia. The outlines of the building are extremely raw and give life to very geometric shapes. The rendering looks like a geometric sculpture that grew straight from the ground.

The luxurious Hotel del Salto opened in 1928 to welcome wealthy travelers visiting the Tequendama Falls area, in Colombia. So where did it all go wrong? Unfortunately, due to non existent regulations of Colombian authorities, the Bogota river was allowed to become contaminated by industrial waste. The reputation of the area as a tourist destination was badly damaged as a result, and tourists quickly stopped visiting.

The $12 million project, managed by Tishman Construction Corporation, came about in May 2014 when an ornamental plaster rosette fell 52 feet from the Reading Room's ceiling. To mark the occasion, the NYPL has shared an incredible collection of photographs documenting the restoration work and the Rose Main Reading Room with nearly all scaffolding removed.

A combination of roadside attraction novelty and greater architectural freedom resulted in some very strange 20th-century buildings. Below are 23 examples of this novelty architecture. In almost all the cases, the owners wanted to use their buildings to proclaim what they were selling inside.

Here in Phoenix, we have Metrocenter - Arizona's largest mall when it was built in the early 70's, now it's the dirt mall and dying fast. Take this virtual tour and marvel at its increasingly abandoned majesty, with 22 nodes of 360-degree panoramic views, set to the theme from Dawn of the Dead. Glorious.

Tree in the House is designed by Almassov of A Masow Architects as an inverted treehouse, intended to provide an escape from the "sweltering concrete boxes" of city life. It features a completely glazed and cylindrical structure to give 360-degree-views of a forest setting.

You would think that living in a subterranean home would be dark, dank, moldy, and musty. Not necessarily so. Soil may not be the greatest insulator but it does keep a very constant and comfortable temperature. Here are six beautiful takes on that theme.
