Assemble is a multi-disciplinary collective working across architecture, design and art. They take a hands on, collaborative approach, and whilst their work usually includes design it rarely starts or ends there. It often employs a range of means from the social to the infrastructural to make spaces which enable independence, self-authorship, creativity and difference.

In 2015 Assemble were awarded the Turner Prize for their on-going work in ‘Granby Four Streets’, Liverpool.

Assemble’s work combines self initiated projects, collaborations and commissions including: Create London, LLDC, London Borough of Croydon, Chichester Festival Theatre, Café Oto, Barbican Arts Centre, London Borough of Waltham Forest, RIBA, Granby Four Streets CLT, London Borough of Hounslow and Goldsmiths College.

Through their involvement in projects they have also established a range of independent organisations across the UK – Blackhorse Workshop, Baltic Street Adventure Playground and Granby Workshop. Founded in 2010 to undertake a single selfbuild project The Cineroleum, Clerkenwell (2010) they have since delivered a diverse body of work across a variety of scales. Recent projects include Goldsmiths Art Gallery, New Cross, Granby Winter Garden and Bell Square Pavillion, Hounslow.

This is an Atelier/ SVA collaboraton as part of the OWN project.
