The Beacon of Hope from the roof of The Rembrandt Hotel
The Beacon of Hope was conceived in 1997 as Manchester's answer to the threat of HIV/AIDS. It was designed by Warren Chapman and Jess Byrne-Daniels, who won a design competition in 1997.
The design consists of a series of elements combining together the existing 'Tree of Life' with the 'Beacon of Hope' light sculpture. They describe a metaphorical journey through life, providing the opportunity for remembrance, contemplation and celebration.
