For the first time ever, the prestigious Turner Prize has been awarded to non-artists. Assemble Collective was bestowed with the honour for their grassroots work to regenerate Granby Four Streets, a blighted area in Liverpool, together with residents. Their long-term vision for the district? A self-made neighborhood that’s welcoming, artistic, multicultural and architecturally rich, as well as the greenest quarter in the city. When done well, city making can be an art, after all.
