“To build a national landmark, which will declare God’s goodness to all people.”
‘The Wall’ will be an iconic national landmark which brings to the forefront of the nation’s consciousness.”
A MILLION BRICKS – A MILLION ANSWERED PRAYERS
- will create an opportunity for individuals to consider and reflect the worth of prayer
- will give those to whom Jesus has answered their prayer, the opportunity to tell their story to hundreds of thousands
- will in its design be inspirational to all – regardless of faith or culture
- will be a testimony of God’s goodness to all people
This landmark will last for generations to come providing inspiration to those that see it and keeping alive the stories of answered prayers that it represents.
What Is ‘The Wall’ To Be?
‘Awesome wonder’ – Viewers will be amazed by the enormity of the structure, intended to create a ‘wow.’
‘Intrigue’ – Whilst there should be enough to draw people with the key themes noted above, the overall meaning of ‘The Wall’ should not be immediately evident to the first time viewer. The design should be one that sparks interest to investigate further, whether that be online or visiting the site.
The name ‘The Wall’ should not be taken too literally and seen as a limitation to designer’s creativity, it can be interpreted in many ways. There is no expectation of whether the design or materials should be traditional or modern, a wide range of approaches is expected and hoped for. The important thing is that the proposal is an evocative interpretation of the brief to provoke the responses set out above.
