On Friday 27 September 2019, the Vlaamse Architectuur Academie (VAA) and Stadsbouwmeester Gent invite the international collective Assemble for a lecture within the context of the Festival van de architectuur (F/a).
Projects in dialogue with the community
Assemble is an interdisciplinary collective based in London that works at the intersection of architecture, design and art. Assemble was founded in 2010 and has since expanded a diverse and acclaimed oeuvre. The group always creates projects in consultation with the community for which it designs. In 2015 Assemble won the prestigious Turner Prize with an atypical project in Liverpool. They transformed Granby Street in the neglected Toxteth neighborhood from a problem area into a dynamic, social and livable neighborhood. The dialogue with the residents and personal approach ensured the success of their project, in contrast to previous attempts by official authorities.
The VAA is the initiative of the five Flemish universities with courses in the broad field of architecture, namely KU Leuven, VUB, UGent, UHasselt and UAntwerpen. The five educational institutions regularly join forces within the context of the VAA to realize projects, exhibitions and symposia.
