, one of the most exceptional pieces of U.S. architecture, is celebrating its 35th anniversary this June. Frank Lloyd Wright protégé E. Fay Jones designed the glass-enclosed Gothic-style house of worship, which has received international acclaim for its iconic design, use of locally sourced natural materials, and its sensitivity to the forested surroundings in Arkansas’ Ozark Mountains. The organic modern masterpiece was even listed as the fourth greatest building of the 20th century by the American Institute of Architects —a distinction that no doubt helped put a stop to a transmission line proposal that would have destroyed the chapel’s natural settings. In honor of Thorncrown Chapel’s 35th anniversary, photographer Randall Connaughton has produced new views of the landmark chapel—click through to see them all!
