Congratulations Assemble – Turner Prize Winners 2015!

Over the years, we’ve had lots of incredibly talented people through the doors here at DoES – designers, artists, developers, philanthropists and much more beside. However, like almost every co-working or maker space in the UK, we’ve never had a Turner Prize winner.

Well, now we have.

On December 7th in Glasgow, London based collective Assemble won the coveted prize for their work in Toxteth, the Granby Four Streets Project, becoming the first architecture project to ever lift the award.

Quite aside from breaking new ground in the art world, they have done the same – both literally and figuratively – in the architecture world, by pioneering a more holistic, community driven vision of local regeneration, working with local residents to ensure that the spirit of the area was not lost during the work, which has often been a criticism levelled at more traditional regeneration projects.

During their work in the city, Assemble members have worked in DoES Liverpool, making use of the workshop facilities to create various items that have gone into the project, and becoming part of the community – as does everyone who comes here.

We’re delighted to have been able to provide even the tiniest help towards such a great team making history, and, more importantly, making a difference in Liverpool.
