Design competition “The wall”, Great Britain
A wall made up of a million bricks, each brick makes sense, because it represents the answer to prayer. It sounds fantastic, but this project will be translated into reality. The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) is already considering the idea of the contestants to create a unique wall of the size of 62 houses, which will be created on the side of the motorway.
In the first half of the year, nearly 50,000 pounds sterling was collected for the project through the king-face portals. The funds that will remain after the implementation of the project, the organizers will give to charitable needs.
The competition was created for architects, sculptors, artists and engineers. The authors of the five best projects will receive 4,000 pounds each, as well as the opportunity to finalize their idea and bring it to perfection. However, only one project will be created in reality. Organizers believe that the appearance of an amazing wall will bring terrain economic benefits.
