E. Fay Jones, the architect who designed this chapel, studied under Frank Loyd Wright. You can see Wright's influence in Jones' "simplicity of construction, use of native materials, attention to crafted details, and seamless integration of building to site. In his own work, Jones reached new and original architectural conclusions with the innovative vertical use of glass and a strict awareness of the role of interior and exterior spaces of light."*** 84 of the 129 projects built from Fay Jone's designs are in Arkansas, his home state. He is most known for Thorncrown Chapel, which was voted one of the most important buildings of the 20th century by the American Institute of Architects.
