The culture of living closer together.
Assemble Papers is an online and printed publication for small footprint living, covering art, design, architecture, urbanism, the environment and financial affairs. Reflecting an ‘ethicurean*’ approach to life, Assemble Papers stands for optimism. From culture and knowledge through to what we eat and buy, we believe that how we live and what we consume matters.
We treat our readership with the utmost respect, as intelligent peers with whom we share values, knowledge and stories. Appealing to both left and right sides of the brain, we feature content that aims for ingenuity and inventiveness, while taking a thoughtful, considered and practical approach to the clutter of contemporary life. Assemble Papers is published by Assemble, an architecture, design and property development company based in Melbourne.
Launched in 2012, we publish work by and about a stellar mix of people; words, ideas and images related to living creatively and collectively. Our print publication is a biannual affair and available for free around Australia and occasionally in the world. Online, we publish new content weekly (subscribe to our free e-newsletter to get a hit every Friday morning, 11am AEST). We like people. If you like what you see and would like to contribute or just say hola, nihao, bonjour, guten tag or g’day, get in touch.
We’re local and global citizens based in Collingwood, Melbourne, Australia.
