‘2 degrees more’ is a project designed in response to a study by Climate Central which found that a 2c rise in temperatures would result in a rise in sea levels and the Port of Leith coast in Edinburgh would be submerged underwater. As well as this problem, Edinburgh is named the most expensive Scottish city for housing and is becoming unaffordable. With research, a large abandoned floodplain site at Edinburgh’s coast was found to be underutilised for a city in demand for affordable living. In response to the inevitable, 2 degrees more is designed to be a sustainable and affordable housing community built above ground for Edinburgh’s growing number of students attending one of the cities many Universities and Colleges. With research into the history of the Port of Leith, it was learnt that the site was once part of a shipbuilding yard, which often built ships for the British Naval Army. One memorable ship type being ‘Dazzle Ships’. Further research into Scottish history discovered there was a connection to a loch dwelling known as a Crannog, in which was used for defence against enemies, much like the army ships. Combining these two wildly different yet symbolically similar constructions with a modern approach enables us to preserve the authenticity of the site and remember forgotten Scottish history and link it with Scotland’s future.
