Turner Prize 2015

Collective Assemble


The London collective Assemble, made up of young architects and designers, has been given the 2015 Turner Prize, one of the most important awards in the United Kingdom. Handed yearly by the Tate museums to a British visual artist under the age of fifty, its purpose is to “celebrate new developments in contemporary art.” The project for which Assemble was selected, the refurbishment of a social housing development in one of the most depressed areas of Liverpool, sparks debate on the artistic nature of urbanistic and architectural operations, while distancing itself from the eccentric and mercantile character of the works that have merited the Turner in previous editions.
