Architecture Fringe Festival

In collaboration with

Civic Soup Members

Leith Walk, Edinburgh

June 2018

In response to the Architecture Fringe Festival’s 2018 provocation, Common Senses, Civic Soup led a small internal research project, exhibited as a global trail at locations on Leith Walk.

Upon a sudden dispersal of Civic Soup members to new locations across the world, we took the opportunity to make investigations into these contexts revealing issues facing each.


From Ullapool to Mumbai, through Warsaw; our everyday experiences were perhaps not as common as they were in Edinburgh. Through imagery and short written pieces we drew parallels between the issues profiled in each place as a prompt for local conversations in the spaces we exhibited. Visitors were encouraged to share their thoughts through writing and discussion.
