AD Classics: Thorncrown Chapel / E. Fay Jones

This article was originally published on August 2, 2014. To read the stories behind other celebrated architecture projects, visit our AD Classics section.

Hidden in the middle of the forests surrounding Arkansas’ Ozark Mountains, Thorncrown Chapel rests amongst the oaks, pines and maples. The humble chapel, designed by Euine Fay Jones, is less than 35 years old – yet it’s on the U.S. Historic register, has been named one of the AIA’s top ten buildings of the 20th century, and has even been called the best American building since 1980.
