Lost Spaces is a summary of the work of Architectural Design students (Years 3 and 4 – BA/MA(Hons) programme) at the ESALA – University of Edinburgh. It proposes a design-based reflection about the value of lost spaces around Leith Walk/Easter Road, in the process of decay in their lifecycle. The task in hand was to create an intervention in the lost space that provides living accommodation and associated common facilities for a particular protagonist in need of care, implementing a strategy of socially integrated and architecturally sustainable neighbourhood. Responding at the scale of the project sites, the proposals prioritised specific residential functions with open spaces and common facilities adapted to modern living patterns.
