A new life on the water
Leith Docks
The visualisation details a block within the masterplan which addresses a new way of living on the water in the Albert Dock. The block contains a mix of 1-3 bed terrace, duplex and live/work apartments on the water, with a density of approximately 125 units/ha.

Carol Hayes
This year I have specialised in architecture and urbanism, exploring urban design approaches to dockland development. The year included a collaboration with Dutch urban design students from the Amsterdam Academy to produce strategic concepts for dockland sites in Leith and Rotterdam.
Leith Docks became the site for my individual project, in which I identified the Water of Leith as a north/south integrator between Leith and the city centre, and explored the variety of environments unique to Edinburgh that could be created by canalising the river. Under this premise I developed a masterplan for Leith Docks and a detailed live/work scheme on the water. The exhibition describes this new vision for Leith Docks and highlights the potential for life on the water.
