Building Is A Verb

27-06-202427-06-2024

Avec: Amy Perkins and James Binning are founding members of Assemble, an organisation working for a built environment that is more generous, more equitable and aware of the impact that architecture and construction have on both people and the planet. Between 2010-2016 Amy worked on several formative Assemble projects including the Turner Prize-winning Granby 4 Streets before moving to Switzerland to work in the chair of Studio Tom Emerson at ETH. She is a founding member of feminist collective Annexe with whom she was recently awarded the commission for the Swiss International Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2025. Currently Amy is working with Assemble and community organisations in Bridport, Dorset on affordable, ecological retrofit projects. Since 2010 James work has combined architecture with fabrication and construction management on Assemble’s self-built projects and strategic design roles on ambitious, large-scale and experimental projects in the UK and abroad. He was a project architect on Assemble’s transformation of a disused trainshed for Atelier Luma, in Arles and is the project lead on the design of a dense new industrial district in Canberra, Australia, two of Assemble’s most significant projects to date. Since 2021 Amy and James are Visiting Critics at the EPFL, leading a design studio for the Architecture Section.

Tectonics of sustainability

28-06-202428-06-2024

Avec: Eik Frenzel and Yves Dreier. Graduates in architecture from ETH in Zurich and TU in Dresden, Yves Dreier and Eik Frenzel founded their practice Dreier Frenzel Architecture + Communication office in 2008. In the last 15 years their professional work embodies the idea of dialogue and exchange to develop a message adapted to the diversity of the contemporary world. Their activity goes beyond the simple desire to build and is enriched by experimental and theoretical approaches. Further they have had the opportunity to teach at several institutions and above all as visiting professors at EPFL. Motivated by a desire for abundant interdisciplinary collaborations, their work is part of a broader societal context. Their deep understanding of architecture as a field of research and experimentation has led to prototypical and iconic realizations of numerous sustainable projects. Their work is internationally recognized and awarded such as: Deutscher Bauweltpreis in 2009, the Swiss Art Awards in 2016 and the FVPC Building Culture Prize in 2020.
