Bible Verse of the Day:
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
MATTHEW 22:37 KJV
Interior view of Thorncrown Chapel, a small but soaring glass and cross-braced pine chapel nestled in an eight-acre woodland setting in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas. Designed by architect E. Fay Jones and constructed in 1980, the Chapel’s design recalls the Prairie School of architecture popularized by Jones’ chief mentor, Frank Lloyd Wright. The Chapel stands 48 feet with 24-foot-wide by 60-foot-long dimensions for a total of 1,440 square feet. Its 425 windows, made of 6,000 square feet of glass, filter woodland light across its upward diamond-shaped pine trusses to form ever-changing patterns of light and shadow throughout the day and night. During the design process, Jones decided that in order to preserve the site's natural setting, no structural element could be larger than what two men could carry through the woods. The Chapel was constructed using organic materials indigenous to northwestern Arkansas. (AIArchitect aia.org)
