Alice Edgerley is a founding member of the art and architectural collective Assemble. Alice has been working with Assemble for the last 11 years, carefully creating spaces that are respectful of their social, cultural and ecological context. Over the years, she has developed the Turner Prize winning projects in Granby, Liverpool, as well as a range of other socially oriented cultural and workspace initiatives across the UK. Alice widely lectures on her own and Assemble’s work, including at COAM Madrid and Barbican in London.
In this lecture, Alice talks about the process of making Laguna Viva, the garden at V–A–С Zattere, and its partner project The Factory Floor which was presented at the 2018 Venice Biennale of Architecture. These two projects, both focused on locality, ecology and materiality, provide a departure point for understanding the approaches that Assemble use to implement these ideas into their projects.
