Dollhouse Blog



If you like ice cream and architecture (and who doesn't), you should follow COOLHAUS ice cream sandwiches on Facebook. You know COOLHAUS from reading the Dollhouse blog. They make the architectonic treats named after famous architects, like the Mies Vanilla Rohe and the Frank Behry. And they're sold from a food truck. So that's good.

So anyway, if you follow COOLHAUS on Facebook, you'll probably learn about some pretty cool architecture. I just did. The Thorncrown Chapel in Eureka Springs, Arkansas is a 48-foot tall wooden structure with over 6000 square feet of glass, inspired by Sainte Chappelle in Paris. Opened in 1980 and designed by architect E. Fay Jones, Thorncrown Chapel was the dream of retired school teacher, Jim Reed who bought the land for his own retirement home. He instead decided to share the beauty of spot with everyone by constructing a sanctuary. Phew. That's pretty cool.

And if you follow COOLHAUS on FB, you'll probably learn their location for the day and the secret word to get a discount if, you know, you want to have some ice cream. And stuff.
