Assemble is a London-based architecture collective whose 18 members have worked across art, architecture, and design since 2010. While the typical architecture firm tends to deal with corporate and government clients to negotiate the cost of designing a building or public space, Assemble has come to be known for its willingness to see opportunities for design in everyday places and everyday people. Since 2010, the collective has collaborated with the public to reimagine underused spaces, from transforming a former gas station into a cinema along one of the U.K.'s busiest roadways to recruiting children to help design and build their own Brutalist playground. The Assemble team's imaginative streak and ability to think outside the box has garnered rave reviews from critics and the public alike. Their impact has been so great, in fact, that the collective was awarded the 2015 Turner Prize, one of the U.K.'s highest honors for young artists.
