We endorse judge Alastair Hudson's statement that “In an age when anything can be art, why not have a housing estate?” 

What's got everybody talking is a direct action collective, Assemble, of 18 young designers and architecture graduates who have helped breathe new life into a rundown Liverpool housing estate.

“This is what’s happening,” Hudson said. “It is working away from art as entertainment. These are artists working in very specific circumstances to make something happen, to make something change. It’s very positive for the future of art – they are trying to do something rather than just represent something.
