Cordes Lakes & Arcosanti, Arizona
Cordes Lakes is a census-designated place (CDP) in Yavapai County, Arizona, United States. The population was 2,058 at the 2000 census.
Cordes was established in 1883 by John Henry Cordes. The town was originally destined to be called Antelope Junction; however, Cordes’ application for a post office in that name was denied in 1883. The reason was that there was already an Antelope Station in Arizona.
The Cordes Lakes’ back roads lead straight to the Agua Fria National Monument. There is one shallow man-made lake that often dries up in the summer or all year, especially during times of drought.
Cordes Junction is in close proximity to the unique Arcosanti Community.
ARCOSANTI The Urban Laboratory
Established in 1970 by Italian architect, artist, and philosopher Paolo Soleri, Arcosanti is an urban laboratory constructed in the Arizona high desert to test an alternative human habitat. After 50 years, it still looks like an experiential space to “prototype” an environment like no others.
Founded in 1970, Arcosanti is a project of The Cosanti Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to inspire a reimagined urbanism that builds resilient and equitable communities sustainably integrated with the natural world. At Arcosanti, we pursue this mission through experimentation and application of the principles of arcology, a combination of the words architecture and ecology that offers an alternative to urban sprawl.
Located in the heart of central Arizona, Arcosanti is only an hour’s drive from Phoenix, Flagstaff, Prescott, and Sedona—an easy day trip or a convenient stopping point on any road trip. You can visit us in person almost every day of the year, enjoying guided tours, hiking trails, and a café where you can enjoy breakfast and lunch much of the week.
