CAFxKADK Lecture Series: Assemble practice - artist talk with the Turner Prize Winners
Philip de Langes Allé 10
1435 København K
KADK, The School of Architecture, and the Copenhagen Architecture Festival invites you to the CAF x KADK lecture series presented by prominent contemporary architects, filmmakers, and artists from a variety of generations and continents. The presenters will engage with problems concerning architecture and urbanization, each in their own way, influencing the architecture profession and the arts in 2019.
Join us for these lectures to learn more about what is happening in the field of architecture around the world and participate in discussions about how international agendas and approaches relate to the situation in Denmark. All lectures are free – just show up!
Joe Halligan from the UK-based design and architecture collective, Assemble, will speak about practice and methods.
Assemble is a multi-disciplinary collective working across architecture, design, and art. Founded in 2010 to undertake a single self-built project, Assemble has since delivered a diverse and award-winning body of work, whilst retaining its democratic and co-operative approach and structure. In 2015, Assemble received the prestigious Turner Prize for British artists for their renewal of the Granby Four Streets in Liverpool. Community support and engagement was central to their project, where residents had fought for 20 years to save their terraced houses from demolition.
