The Evolution of Broward’s Butterfly House

When Robert Broward designed his famous Mid-Century Modern “Butterfly House” in 1957, he used rainwater and sunlight as materials. In the early ’60s, Fred Nachman added pecky cypress and clad the house in Gothic iron. When Kathryn Stater purchased it in 2016, it was on the verge of demolition. Now it’s more itself than it’s ever been.

  1. I am commenting on the piece about J.C. Patrick not this article. Sorry but I couldn’t figure out a better way to comment. I am Jimmy Patrick’s cousin. My father posted Jimmy’s bail after his arrest and Jimmy and his mother lived with us for a time afterwards. I would love to discuss this with you.
