A research exhibition showing a virtual space and archive of tangible and intangible cultural heritage of UK Muslim communities.


Virtual Assembly is a virtual space and archive for Old Kent Road Mosque and MANUK (Muslim Association of Nigeria UK) in response to the demolition and redevelopment of their mosque. This interactive model has been built in collaboration with David Scott and Florian Koenig from the Fabrication Lab and acts as an experiential archive, providing innovative ways to engage with tangible and intangible cultural heritage. This is a research exhibition, with the intention of allowing the congregation and the general public to interact with the models during the project's developmental phase, enabling a dialogue about the process and delivery of content. 

Virtual Assembly has developed from Julie Marsh’s long-term research project Assembly, a series of site-specific artworks made and exhibited in three London mosques between 2018–2021. The findings from this research were shown as part of the Three British Mosques exhibition at the 2021 Venice Architecture Biennale, curated by Shahed Saleem and the V&A.
