About

Assemble are a London-based collective who work across the fields of art, design and architecture to create projects in tandem with the communities who use and inhabit them. Their architectural spaces and environments promote direct action and embrace a DIY sensibility.

Assemble have been nominated for projects including the ongoing collaboration with local residents and others in the Granby Four Streets, Liverpool. The project is a result of a 20 year battle by local residents to save rows of terraced houses in the area from demolition. In this film members of the collective discuss their surprise nomination, how the project has evolved and their plans for the remaining empty buildings.

Turner Prize 2015 is at Tramway until 17 January 2016.
