Our design seeks to create a place that will inspire a deeper engagement with God’s goodness and the reality of answered prayer. More than that, we have sought to create a living wall, a place alive with the prayers of those who will connect with it.
Our concept is the Möbius strip, an idea inspired during a time of prayer. The structure is rich with symbolism.
The Möbius strip is a surface without beginning or end. It speaks of God’s eternal and triune nature and ensures that Eternal Wall’s message of God’s goodness unifies and inhabits the whole structure. It is also a highly dynamic form embodying the power and dynamism of prayer.
The bricks depicting a million answered prayers are also significant. The monument is made from 1 million, and the design ensures that every brick is whole and visible on the structure's surface. The use of white brick speaks of purity and will enhance the play of light on form, offering ethereal qualities that will enhance its iconic presence in the landscape.
This monument will be instantly recognisable, highly engaging and beautiful, whether viewed up close or from a distance. The Wall’s gently twisting shape results in a highly dynamic yet elegant form that is simultaneously prominent and in harmony with Britain’s gentle landscape. We believe this balance between impact and intimacy with the landscape is essential if the structure is to become both loved and iconic in the eyes of a wide audience.
