Join us for a tour of the Fay and Gus Jones House in Fayetteville.

The Fay and Gus Jones House, completed in 1956, is the first project completed by architect Fay Jones at the start of his private practice. Referred to by some as “Fay’s Experiment,” the house is important as the first trial of many of the ideas Jones would use and refine in his subsequent projects. Currently owned by the University of Arkansas, and stewarded by the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design, this simple, beautiful house is the embodiment of the organic design principles set forth by the architect in all his work. 

The tour will be led by Greg Herman, Associate Professor of Architecture at the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design, and Director of the Fay and Gus Jones House Stewardship. In addition to teaching, his research focuses primarily on the work of Fay Jones and his mid-century contemporaries.

Registration is required and will begin on February 14th.
