Custom Lane invites you to join James Binning of Assemble as part of the Talks at the Lane series.

Assemble are a collective working across architecture, design and art. Founded in 2010 to undertake a single self-built project, Assemble has since grown and delivered a diverse and award winning body of work, whilst retaining a democratic and co-operative working method. This enables built, social and research-based work at a variety of scales, both making things and making things happen.  In 2015 Assemble Studio was the first architecture or design studio to win the prestigious Turner Prize for projects including the collaboration with local residents and others in the Granby Four Streets, Liverpool.

We welcome James Binning to talk about both the work of the group and about Assemble itself as ongoing project that is subject to regular revision and reconfiguration. Their practice focuses on finding ways in which their skills as designers, makers, researchers and educators can enable them to contribute to the production of the contemporary built environment, and their talk will focus on the challenges and constraints they face as a group and which are common problems for the profession at large.

This talk follows on from Izat Arundell & Collaborators, Rural Office for Architecture, STUDIO NIRO and Clancy Moore.

Please come and share a drink and some thoughts with us, and as usual light refreshments are provided for our guests.

With thanks to the Talks at the Lane team, Natasha Huq, John Robson and Jan Hajek.
