Stow Memorial is a spire-less church, even though Robert George Thomas’ winning architectural design featured a spire and the church’s building committee desired a spire to ‘ensure... impressiveness and associations’. Like an architectural spire reaches toward the sky and sun, this gothic-inspired portable spire-for-one offers a symbolic space to reach upward, beyond one’s self. Standing underneath the coloured light, looking up, it is hoped that moments of transcendence abound. Photograph Grant Hancock
