Maria Lisogorskaya

Spatial Practices Programme; Stage 1 Design Tutor, MA Architecture: Cities and Innovation.

I am one of the founding directors of Assemble studio, and practice between the scales of immediate hands-on material prototyping, architecture and urban strategy.

Following Assemble’s first projects, I have led on research into and policy development of affordable workspace in London, establishing a publicly accessible workshop and fabrication venue. I have subsequently been developing alternative approaches to housing development in the UK and abroad, focussing on affordable, self-determinant and collective living. 

I have lectured and delivered workshops internationally, and have been awarded the Winston Churchill Fellowship to research collective building projects in US and China.
