Google an image of architect Fay Jones’ masterpiece Thorncrown Chapel. The non-denominational Arkansas house of worship is one of the most famous designs from the American Institute of Architects- awarded Frank Lloyd Wright apprentice.
Bucking the tendency of successful architects to gravitate toward towering skyscraper projects, throughout his career Jones favored designing homes and churches with an intensely geometric and organic modern style.
Arizona-based architect Eddie Jones will give a lecture, The Architecture of Fay Jones, focusing on the life and work of Jones with a focus on the chapel. The talk will be followed by a screening of the documentary Sacred Spaces: The Architecture of Fay Jones.
