| Gallery IV - Copper of SAMARA"Photographs that say a lot about Frank Lloyd Wright's genius of design." Ed Townsend, 1999
The copper patina color of the ornamental fascia attached along the lower roof draws attention to SAMARA. Otherwise, Frank Lloyd Wright designed a very quiet house and property to reflect the personalities of John and Kay Christian, his clients.
In these photographs, the Copper of SAMARA stands out as the dominant feature of the house. The iron entrance gate, with its characteristic robin egg shell color of copper, draws your eyes up the drive toward the house. The ornamental fascia can be seen hugging the lower roof line nearly all the way around the house. The color of the furniture on the lanai matches the patina colored fascia of the lower roof line above the dining room.
