Assemble, an architecture collective, frames the conversation.

An architecture collective has been awarded the Turner Prize for contemporary art for the first time in the 31-year history of the prestigious UK art competition, reports Anne Quito. The firm, Assemble, is a 15-person collective founded in 2010 and is comprised of artists, architects and designers who work within the local community. The collective was specifically recognized for their work with a run-down estate in Liverpool called “The Granby Four Streets,” where they revived 10 homes in the neighborhood.
“They don’t occupy the realm of the single genius solitary artist,” said juror Alistair Hudson said of prize winner Assemble, to Channel 4 news. “This is collective activity working within society, not in the hierarchical structure of the art world.”

Assemble's work will be on display at Tramway in Glasgow, Scotland, until January 17, 2016.
