America’s most celebrated architect was featured through an exciting collection of renderings, blueprints, furnishings, textiles, and other items from SAMARA, one of the late Usonian style homes Wright was commissioned to design during the 1950’s by John and Catherine Christian of Lafayette, Indiana. But this exhibition represented much more than that. It was really an exhibition about dreams. It reflected Wright’s deeply held dream of designing a comfortable, harmonious, and affordable home for the common man; a home at one with nature and in sync with the lifestyle of its occupants.
