The Wall

Design Competition for “A National Landmark of Hope” , “To remind generations of God’s goodness” - Made of a million bricks with each one representing an answered prayer, was the brief which we responded with:

A wall floating in the sky – like the castle in the painting of “Saint Francis and the Poor Knight and Francis’s Vision” by Sassetta, will be seen from far away to surprise, amaze, excite and awaken one to think and explore …

A solid band of brick lifted of the ground – like a strong medieval town wall creating a protected space between earth and heaven, a place for reflection and contemplation, a space for meeting and discussions …

Coloured bricks threaded on cables – like the beads on a rosary to inspire as well as reflect, each representing a prayer from the past, the now and the future …

With our proposal we want to stimulate feelings and thoughts about prayer in many different and unexpected ways.
