E. Fay Jones- Thorncrown Chapel

The Thorncrown Chapel was built from 1978 to 1980. This piece was built by E. Fay Jones in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. This piece has received numerous awards and was even named one of the top ten building of the century. E. Fay Jones seemed to be obsessed with the infinity look as all the arches in the building look as though they go on forever. He also loves to illuminate his buildings with a lot of natural lighting. This enormous chapel as seen in the second picture was made with a lot of cross sectioned beams. This network of cross beams filling the inside of the building is a very interesting feature. I would find myself looking around at the building more than pay attention to what is going on inside.
