Green's Steps were built as part of Dance Base, designed
Fraser Architects and completed June 2001.
project was funded by a major award from Scottish Arts Council
Lottery with additional funding from Edinburgh World Heritage
Trust, City of Edinburgh Council and a number of other trust
Dance Base is intimately linked into its physical and historical
context. In its development of the abandoned backlands, re-use,
repair and expansion of physical elements and traditional mediaeval
urban patterns (Close, Vennel and Flodden Wall) and provision
of elements of amenity (the Park at Granny’s Green) Dance
Base reinvigorates the area, at the same time gaining in itself
from those relationships.
Green's Steps lead up from THE
GRASSMARKET to JOHNSTON
