    California Contemporary
    Architectural model & mirror

    My family’s upcoming move prompted me to look into the origin of my childhood home. What I had grown up assuming to be a unique structure I found to be the opposite – a prefabricated house designed and sold by Scholz Homes in the 1950s and 60s. California Contemporary memorializes the house, infinitely reflecting its image in a continuous inversion of loss. At the same time, this proliferation speaks to the thousands of “California Contemporaries” built throughout the United States, a thin connection that runs through the common environments of distantly located, unrelated people.
