A series of walks in and around the Serpentine Pavilion explores themes related to its design through conversation and performative interventions.
Maria Lisogorskaya and Fran Edgerley are two of the founders of Assemble, a London-based architecture and design collective. For this Saturday Walk, titled Serpentine Offering, Lisogorskaya and Edgerley invited the public to attend a ceremonial ritual; a builder's rite for the Serpentine Pavilion and the commodification of architecture.
At the heart of Assemble’s working practice is a belief in the importance of addressing the typical disconnection between the public and the process by which spaces are made. Assemble champion a working practice that is interdependent and collaborative, seeking to actively involve the public as both participant and accomplice in the on-going realisation of the work.
