AP print issue #7: In/formation

The 7th print issue of Assemble Papers, 'In/formation', considers activism, collective action and the power of people in the information age. (The Beyonce reference in this issue's title is a happy accident.) Here, AP editor Sara Savage explains some of the thinking behind this issue, published in partnership with CLIMARTE, the clever folks behind the biennial ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE festival.

Solar for the Suburbs

In our second article shared from 'Future West (Australian Urbanism)', a new print publication considering the future of urbanism through the lens of Perth and Western Australia, Brad Pettitt and Peter Newman consider how a WA-based solar project might advance the future of home solar technology, with over one in five households in Perth now generating solar energy.

AP Print Issue #6: Future Local

"There’s a reason why journalist and urban activist Jane Jacobs’s reflections on the 'intricate ballet' of the city have endured for urban planners and everyday city-dwellers alike, despite being penned half a century ago." – Sara Savage introduces the sixth print issue of Assemble Papers, 'Future Local'.

AP Print Issue #5: The Ecological Age

The Great Apartment Design Debate

Assemble directors, Ben, Pino and Quino, contribute to the current debate on Victorian apartment design standards by taking a look at the history of apartments in Melbourne, the current market dynamics, the impact of regulation in NSW and the potential impact of those standards here in VIC. This is a vital debate for our city and one which we encourage everyone to participate in.
