A new interior space for Dundee

Assemble’s residency project will reproduce fragments of historic buildings in Dundee.

Working with a group of local young people over the summer, cast panels will be assembled from a range of digital scans. These will form a new interior room, created by combining digital and traditional techniques.

The tools available to make buildings and objects are more sophisticated and wide-ranging than ever. But the increasing use of digital tools tends to produce an urban environment where buildings look and feel increasingly similar. 'Making Room' explores the relationship between contemporary production techniques and traditional building crafts. A range of examples found throughout Dundee will act as inspiration for the project.

You are invited to explore Making Room as it progresses. Find out more about the process and see the final room come together over the summer.

At the end of the exhibition, the room will move to Dundee's Central Library to function as an area for digital learning for the city.

Assemble are a collective whose work focuses on the design and production of the built environment. Find out more about Assemble, our current Designers in Residence.

Our Residency Studio is currently open and showcases a range of Assemble's previous projects.
