Assemble is a multi-disciplinary collective working across architecture, design and art. Founded in 2010 to undertake a single self-built project, Assemble has since delivered a diverse and award-winning body of work, whilst retaining a democratic and co-operative working method that enables built, social and research-based work at a variety of scales, both making things and making things happen.
In 2015 Assemble were awarded the Turner Prize for their network of neighbourhood projects created in collaboration with the residents of Granby, Liverpool, which includes the establishment of the community orientated business Granby Workshop, a manufacturer of architectural ceramics. Recently completed projects include Winter Garden, Granby (2017), and Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art, New Cross (2018).
For Folkestone Triennial, Assemble are working closely with the local skateboarding community to design a series of skateable sculptures that emphasise skateboarding as a deeply social activity. The skating sculptures designed for the Triennial will not simply be usable for a range of skating abilities but also provide a space where people can meet.
