Assemble are working with BC Architects and Materials to design a new workspace for the Luma Atelier in Arles. Based in the Camargue in the south of France, the Luma Atelier is a think tank, production workshop and learning network. The Atelier seeks to co-develop new ways of producing and caring for the city and landscape, using design as a tool for transition.
Working with materials found in the region, Assemble and BC Architects are developing construction techniques in Earth, stone and waste materials. The design is being produced in collaboration with the Atelier, working through a series of residences in Arles, developing and prototyping construction techniques.
