Architectural collective Assemble has won the 2015 Turner Prize for contemporary visual art, the competition's organisers said Monday.

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.

The contemporary art prize, which is named after painter William Turner, has been awarded annually since 1984 to an artist aged under 50 who is living in, or was born in, Britain.

Among its past winners was Damien Hirst, for his bisected cow and calf preserved in formaldehyde.
