An exhibition of drawings and models by 4th Year ESALA students were asked to speculate on possible uses for the currently derelict site of the Edinburgh Tramway Depot situated between Leith Walk and Easter Road.
The students contributed to the production of 4 alternative masterplans for this area that combine living accommodation and associated facilities for a particular protagonist and within a particular theme. It is hoped that this exhibition will contribute to a wider dialogue about the way in which we might use the vacant and ‘lost’ spaces within the city to address contemporary concerns.
