Peaceful Surroundings of Thorncrown Chapel


There is an amazingly beautiful chapel located in the midst of the woods in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. One of the first things that many notice about Thorncrown Chapel is the building's very simplistic design. The walls of the wood-framed chapel are nearly all glass. The peaceful setting has been enjoyed by locals and visitors since its 1980 opening.

Are you at all interested in architecture?

I'm always fascinated by buildings that are unique in one way or another. When we were exploring Eureka Springs, Arkansas in 2019, one of our stops was at Thorncrown Chapel. The very simple design of the chapel won some pretty impressive awards including the American Institute of Architecture honors of Design of the Year (1981), Design of the Decade (1980s) and one of the Top 10 Designs of 20th century. The design of the chapel is quite simple - but being nearly all glass and set in the woods has a unique appeal.

What buildings or other structures have your favorite architectural design?
