This work recalls an iconic zig-zag butterfly roof line designed in 1954 by architect Donald Wexler for a mid-century modern home in Palm Springs, California.

For Postcommodity, Wexler’s design is a symbol of the “progressive design movement” that helped shape urban development in California’s Coachella Valley. Sleek, white modernist homes dot the landscape, which has been divided into gridded plots. Defying the sustaining capacity of natural ecologies throughout the Americas, these modular prototypes were created out of an atomic age optimism that prized the anesthetization of land for maximum yield per square plot development.

Proud of their “kill,” Postcommodity display their trophy.
