The culture of living closer together.
Assemble Papers is an online 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, Assemble Papers believes 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, Assemble Papers features 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, Assemble Papers publishes work by and about a stellar mix of people; words, ideas and images related to living small. New content is published on a weekly basis and is distributed via our free e-newsletter every Friday morning, 11am AEST. We like people. If you like what you see and would like to contribute or just say hola, ni hao, bonjour, guten-tag or g’day, get in touch.
