Making Room

Making Room Image
A new interior space for Dundee

Assemble's residency project will reproduce fragments of historic buildings in Dundee.

Working with a group of local young people and alongside Dundee Central Library, cast panels will be assembled from a range of digital scans. These will form a new interior room, created by combining digital and traditional techniques.

The tools available to make buildings and objects are more sophisticated and wide-ranging than ever. But the increasing use of digital tools tends to produce an urban environment where buildings look and feel increasingly similar. 'Making Room' explores the relationship between contemporary production techniques and traditional building crafts. A range of examples found throughout Dundee will act as inspiration for the project.

Transformed into a site of production, you are invited to explore 'Making Room' as it progresses. During the next few months, prototypes, material tests, sketches and failed experiments will fill the gallery and reveal the process of making. A dynamic public programme of talks, events and workshops will run throughout the project.

The finished structure will be transferred to Central Library as an area for learning made by, and for, the people of Dundee.

Museum opening hours: 10am to 5pm Thursday to Monday.
