The lecture will cover some major issues on developing spaces for work and education in the UK and abroad.
During her talk Maria Lisogorskaya, one of the founding members of Assemble studio, will present a showcase of several projects done by the collective since 2010 and discuss the ideas behind them, in particular how they correlate with the main trends around creative industries. The first architecture practice to be nominated to prestigious Turner prize award, Assemble has always undertaken diverse projects - from social spaces to sites of contemporary production, and Maria will focus on four of the extensive portfolio of the studio: Sugarhouse Studios, Yardhouse, Blackhorse Workshop and Granby Workshop. Based on these project we will see how architectural bureau can work across multiple sectors: not only architecture, but also design and art.
The lecture is part of the series “Theories and practices of cultural leadership” organized by Garage Museum of Contemporary Art in collaboration with the Cultural and Education Section of the British Embassy.
