Frank Lloyd Wright's Samara Exhibit

The Samara house, also known as John E. Christian House, was built between 1954 and 1956 in West Lafayette, Indiana. The exhibition explores the creation of a Wright house through the eyes of a client who spent more than fifty years fulfilling the renowned architect’s Usonian vision. Wright used the term “organic” to convey his belief that every feature of the house, from the structure, to the interior, to the smallest details and objects, should be as one, expressive of a single idea.

Through correspondence, furnishings, graphics, reproduction drawings and photographs, the exhibit explores Wright’s vision and relation with his client.
