Assemble, the architectural collective shortlisted for this year's Turner Prize, reckon their nomination has launched a fresh debate about the state of contemporary art in Britain.The London-based group has blurred traditional boundaries between art and design with its redevelopment plans for 10 Victorian houses in the run-down Toxteth district of Liverpool, northwest England.That project, along with a children's adventure playground in the Scottish city of Glasgow, earned the group its place among the four finalists shortlisted in May for Britain's top contemporary arts prize.Awarded in December, it has been handed out every year since 1984 to an artist aged under 50 who is living in, or was born in, Britain.With no money around, Edgerley said the group did their early projects for their own amusement.The Cineroleum has gone but some 20-odd projects later, the philosophy and approach remains the same.
