Thorn Crown Chapel | E. Fay Jones

Set on the side of a mountain in the lush forests of Eureka Springs, Arkansas sits a unique chapel.

Designed by E.Fay Jones the Thorn Crown Chapel is an intricate steel structure with huge glass windows allowing a 360 degree view into the surrounding forest.

On a bright day dappled light is cast throughout the chapel from the surrounding canopy. 

An imposing but excellent part of the architecture that makes this chapel so unique in my opinion is the 'falling thorns' which hang from the roof.
