E. Fay Jones

Jones is probably the most recognized of Wright's apprentices. The recipient of numerous other accolades, he was also, according to Wikipedia “… the only one of Wright's disciples to have received the AIA Gold Medal, the highest honor awarded by the American Institute of Architects.” Similar to his mentor, Jones’ designs typically incorporated stone, cedar and discreet lighting methods.

Although his designs are also found located in cities from coast to coast, most of Jones' work is found in and around rural Arkansas and he is credited with what is referred to as “the Ozark style of architecture”. The AIA voted his Thorncrown Chapel, located in the Ozarks, the fourth-best building of the 20th century. After over fifty years as an architect, E. Fay Jones died on August 30th, 2004 at the age of 83.
