Design collective wins UK's Turner Prize

Winning scheme for regenerating derelict houses in Liverpool seen as transcending traditional ideas about art.

    Assemble, a collective of 18 young architects and artists, has won Britain's most prestigious award for art. Their scheme to regenerate derelict houses in Liverpool has been described as transcending traditional ideas about art.

    On show in Glasgow is a replica of their Granby workshop, showing products used in the Liverpool renovations, which are also available online.

    For $12 you can own an original tile made by a Turner Prize winner, which is pretty cheap considering this prize can transform careers, turning unknown artists into multimillionaires.

    One former winner, Damien Hirst, is now the world's richest living artist.
