What can Vienna learn from Assemble? Parallel to the exhibition a lecture given by the London collective Assemble offers insights into its way of working and projects.
“We are interested in the question of how idealistic thinking can be applied to the blunt reality of building, in such a way that the building elements or the methods of production are the expression of a social, economic or political approach. We want to create a built environment that can do more than just fulfil the particular function, and which, in addition, shows what we want from our surroundings – namely to allow collective action, to bring communities together or quite simply to open up a new view of the world.”
Lecture in the framework of the future.lab knowledge platform “Öffentlicher Raum” (Public Space) in cooperation with the City of Vienna.
Followed by presentation and opening of the pavilion “BRICKerl” built by students of the TU Vienna / future.lab and Institut Kunst und Gestaltung.
Lecture given in English
