The new national prayer monument known as Wall of Answered Prayer, has been granted planning permission, and building work is set to begin in the spring of 2021. Our Director Renato Benedetti was Chair of the principal judging panel that established the winning design of the RIBA competition.

The 50m-high structure will be built between the M6, M42 and proposed HS2 line at Coleshill Manor on the edge of Birmingham, and will be constructed from a million bricks, each one funded by a £10 donation and symbolising a prayer answered.

The winning design by Southampton-based practice Snug Architects, was inspired by a Möbius strip and incorporates a visitor centre.
