In gratitude, the University of Arkansas School of Architecture was renamed the Fay Jones School of Architecture thanks to a gift from Don and Ellen Edmondson, for whom Jones built a home. So here's to an underappreciated mid-century master, and surely the finest the Natural State has produced. Click on the Slideshow button to see a selection of Jones' work.
I recently got a box of postcards comemorating the work of Arkansas architect Fay Jones and they were so wonderful that I wanted to put a few images of Jones' work online. Jones' contribution to the modern landscape of his home state was significant. He was a student at the University of Arkansas as an undergraduate and through his training in architecture school, eventually becoming a teacher there and the school's first dean of architecture. In addition to his involvement with architecture education in Arkansas, Jones built a number of lovely residences around the state. He passed away in 2004.
