12.30-13.00 - Snug Architects presents 'The Wall of Answered Prayer' national monument

This free event opens with Snug Architects presenting their winning entry in an international RIBA competition to build a national Christian monument 'The Wall of Answered Prayer' which is a dramatic and inspirational roadside structure. Richard Gamble and his team designed a place as monument to and a place for prayer. They have designed the monument as a living wall, alive with the prayers of those who will visit the structure and those whose prayers are tweeted, triggering a multitude of lights that transform the wall into a physical embodiment of the life of the Christian church.

The concept is for a wall made of 1 million bricks, donated from across the regions. Together they form a powerful reminder of our unity, one in Christ, forming a single continuous surface without end. They achieve this through the use of a Möbius strip, creating a continuous loop of wall that allows visitors to progress through a triumphant arch, the gate beautiful, before encircling the wall. Bricks are arranged to represent prayers of praise, confession, supplication, etc. At the centre is space for many thousands to gather, and, become a space to host to large gatherings.

Although beautifully simple and pure in form, it’s twisting arch will rise dramatically but in harmony with Britain’s rolling landscape. It is both gentle and dynamic, secure yet open and inviting. Its form focuses up, in and out. It's goal is not only to represent one million answered prayers but also inspire future generations to pray.


13.00-13.30 NURBS and Freeform Modelling CPD

This educational CPD is presented by Steve Brann (CAD School), who will show you how you can create 3D freeform curves using the NURBS Curve tool in Vectorworks.


13.45–16.00 Special Vectorworks Seminar

After a short break Steve Brann (CAD School) will be demonstrating the powerful Vectorworks features including 3D modelling, terrain modelling, and schedules. There will also be a special focus, announced during the seminar.
