Assemble & Join is a community micro-manufacturing workshop on Lower Marsh, a thriving independent high street in the heart of South London.
A&J re-imagines the role a high street can play within a community, and in turn the role a community can play in the way an area develops over time. Situated in a former cafe, A&J will offer local residents, school children, shopkeepers, market traders and community groups the chance to collectively research, design and build changes to the public realm to better suit their needs, as well as those of the community as a whole. This will potentially include everything from wayfinding schemes and flat-pack market stalls to Christmas decorations and seating systems.
