Master Plan: A Sprawling Suburban Development Built With Sand

Created by Californian designer Chad Wright, this sandcastle mould is made to resemble a mass-produced tract house, symbol for the model American Dream. Rows of these sand houses were constructed on a beach to resemble sprawling suburban development across the US. In this first of a three part series called "Master Plan", Chad culls artifacts from his own childhood investigating suburbia in its vision and legacy. "I was raised in Orange County—a sprawling suburb of Southern California built by disciples of Levittown." he says, "We lived in a tract house, a symbol of the American Dream, just like our neighbors. As children, my big brother Christopher and I would build cities in the sand."
