Summary “AIA Gold Medalist E. Fay Jones is renowned for his consistently conceived and executed body of work. Inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's principles of organic architecture, Jones has mastered the rules to create his own order and his own point of view. This book, the first to examine Jones's work, presents his houses, chapels, and pavilions, from earlier projects through the present. The chapels, an evolutionary departure from the residences, are among the finest examples of ecclesiastical architecture of this century. Thorncrown Chapel, a tiny sanctuary in Arkansas' Ozark Mountains, was voted the best work of American architecture since 1980, according to an AIA national survey of architects.”--Book jacket
