  • First book on the work of London-based architects' collective Assemble
  • Demonstrates the entire range of Assemble's work and their approach to each project, which always includes the public as both user and collaborator
  • Assemble were the first architects to receive the prestigious Turner Prize in 2015


Assemble: How We Build offers a first comprehensive insight into the work and projects of the London-based architecture collective Assemble. How we build, how things are made and materials are assembled, reflects the social, economic and political conditions of a society. Changing the status-quo by community action is a focal point in the work of Assemble, who have developed a signature blend of social activation, poetic spaces and ecological and economic sustainability.

Assemble's 18 members started their collaboration in 2010, following their graduation from Cambridge University. Their portfolio comprises diverse projects such as a temporary cinema at a former petrol station, affordable workspaces for artists, the foundation of social enterprises, the revitalisation of a former working-class neighbourhood, or designing a new art gallery for Goldsmiths, University of London. In 2015, Assemble was awarded with Turner Prize, the first architects to win Europe's most prestigious distinction for contemporary art.

Assemble: How We Build features ten selected projects to demonstrate the collective's working methods. Further essays provide background information and reflect on Assemble's objectives and philosophy. The book is published in conjunction with a major exhibition at Architekturzentrum Wien Az W in Summer 2017. Text in English and German.
