Thorncrown Chapel

Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.

– Frank Lloyd Wright

Thorncrown ChapelThorncrown Chapel was designed by E. Fay Jones, second of six “most admired” architects recognized by Architecture magazine. An apprentice of Frank Lloyd Wright, Jones’s Thorncrown Chapel displays characteristic organic architectural elements. Demonstrating a respect for the natural setting and integrating a sophisticated orchestration of space and light along with the use of simple, handcrafted, natural materials.

Thorncrown Chapel received the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Honor Award and Jones was awarded the Gold Medal for his contribution. The Architectural Record proclaimed that Thorncrown was“a brilliant testimony to the power of architecture to intensify experience and inspire contemplation.”

E. Fay Jones graduated from the University of Arkansas and spent time apprenticing under Frank Lloyd Wright from 1953-1959. Despite worldwide recognition, Fay Jones ultimately chose to stay in Fayetteville, Arkansas teach at the University of Arkansas and maintain a small practice until his death in 1997. The practice which used to bear his name is still located in Fayetteville and is now known as David McKee Architect. Visit other E. Fay Jones structures like Mildred Cooper Chapel and Peace Chapel on Univeristy of Arkansas’s campus.
