Maria Lisogorskaya and Fran Edgerley invited the public to attend a ceremonial ritual; a builder’s rite for the Serpentine Pavilion.
A series of walks in and around the Serpentine Pavilion explores themes related to its design through conversation and performative interventions.
Lisogorskaya and Edgerley are two of the founders of Assemble, a London-based architecture and design collective. For this Saturday Walk, titled Serpentine Offering, they 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.
