RIO ROCA CHAPEL & CHAPEL HOUSE
RIO ROCA RANCH, TEXAS :: 2008 – 2010

36 pages :: Edited by Randolph C. Henning :: With statements by the architect, client, contractor, and critic

The Rio Roca Chapel & Chapel House project located near Graford, Texas, was designed by the Fayetteville, Arkansas architect Maurice Jennings in 2008. It is unquestionably a contemporary example of the growth of an organic architecture that flowered from the seed of Louis Sullivan, the roots of Frank Lloyd Wright, and the stem of E. Fay Jones. The lineage is unmistakable; the result extraordinarily stunning; the legacy sustained.

The spirit of E. Fay Jones and those that paved his humbly rooted but highly skilled way live proudly alongside Maurice Jennings within this beautifully woven assembly of wood, glass, stone, and steel; all providing physical definition, ethereal manipulation, and spiritual purpose to the air, space, and light at Rio Roca. This single project monograph presents this stunning building with drawings, photos, and statements from its creators and others.
