GRANNY GREEN'S STEPS
Granny Green Steps were built as part of Dance Base, designed by Malcolm
Fraser Architects and completed June 2001. The 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 bodies.
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
