Assembly is a not-for-profit enterprise creating public projects for social good. We work with and for communities discussing and working around themes of something and something.
We are a multi-award winning design group using our broad range of experience and education from Landscape Architecture to something else. Something in the middle? Our projects have been featured in and supported by the following partners. We are currently working on building new projects in Sheffield, UK.
Tradeptford questioned the orthodoxy of the regenerative city, sought to understand the underlying forces of the development profit motive, and looked to re-address the balance of the planning system on a local and national scale. Tradeptford was a chance for a specific locale, a collectively defined 'identity', a shared sense of place, a boundary defined as Deptford, to look at the cause and effect of 'regeneration' and try to plot a different course.
4 'markets' were held that delved into a theme inviting artists, georgraphers, anthropologists to look into the landscape around us and interigate it's use as public space. The structures in the playground acted as a hub from which walks, led out from and workshops and shared meals were prepared. Performances around civic theatre.
