Certainly based upon Fay Jones' chapel designs, I ran across this one in Nebraska that was designed by BCDM Architects of Omaha, NE.

I've seen knockoffs of Wright's Shorewood Hills UU church in Boulder CO and Woodland Hills CA.

That Gothic wall sort of slaps Fay Jones's wonderful invention in the face, doesn't it . . .

Couldn't the mason be persuaded to give his opening an arch matching all the other end-elevation arcs ?

It is as if a sizable Gothic church is half done, waiting for the upper half to be finished. If the stone portion had been done with the same care as the upper portion, it would have been a worthy effort.

It is those little things...

Please note that while the upper structure is curved, the trim on the door is not.
