ASSEMBLE. HOW WE BUILD
June 06, 2017 – September 09, 2017 | Old Hall
Opening: May 31, 2017, 7pm
Press conference: May 31, 2017, 11am

 

How we build, how things are made and materials assemble are crucial elements which show a society’s social, economic and political condition. The work of the London-based collective Assemble engages with changes in these conditions through collaborative action. The members of Assemble established the collective in 2010 following completion of their studies at Cambridge University, and 5 years later they were awarded the Turner Prize, Europe’s most prestigeous prize for contemporary art. Their projects move seamlessly between architecture, the public and urban planning processes.

Assemble are masters in the development of participatory approaches that usually run through all phases of a project, right up to the realisation of the work and beyond. The result is a unique combination of social activation, poetic spaces and economic sustainability. Their projects are prototypes for different ways societies can build.
The Architekturzentrum Wien presents a worldwide premiere with the first overview of the work of Assemble. Eleven selected projects demonstrate the breadth of their work – from realised architecture projects, via furniture designs, to urban interventions.

They depart from the classical paths of mediation for architecture and undertake an artistic re-reading of each project. In addition, a concrete relationship is established in the exhibition between Assemble’s approach and architecture production in Vienna. During preparations for the exhibition a cooperation with Vienna University of Technology has established a visiting professor’s post – the results of these processes flow into the exhibition in spring 2017. What can Vienna learn from Assemble? The exhibition clearly shows new directions that the work of Assemble opens for the future of architecture.
Curators: Angelika Fitz, Katharina Ritter
