June 21 marks the start of the summer solstice, but in Arcosanti the season is eternal. Located in Arizona’s Yavapai County, the town is actually an “urban laboratory” — a study of arcology built into the desert out of molten bronze. It’s a wild, wild “westworld” of sorts — there’s something bewitching about the juxtaposition of the experimental architecture, which dates back to the 1970s, and the purity of the blue skies and nature itself. Together they set the scene for an editorial from Bukunmi Grace — the sun casts an enchanting haze for her lens. The photographer also acts as stylist in the above spread, which finds models Christel Elyse, Andie Downs and Mayah Hatcher dressed to journey in brands like Nike, Asilio, OTT Dubai and New Future London.
