East London architects Assemble have been nominated for the Turner Prize (announced on 7 December).

Of course, their work will be known to EC1 regulars: in 2010, they transformed a disused petrol station on Clerkenwell Road into Cineroleum, a pop-up cinema. Having been named emerging architecture practice of the year at the Icon Awards, the collective has now earned a Turner nomination for their architecture and public realm projects - in particular Granby Four Streets, a collaboration with residents in Liverpool. Assemble also have a forest of timber installation at the V&A during London Design Festival (19-27 September) to mark the centenary of furniture designer Robin Day.
