Contrived from a desire to produce purpose, imagined to bring joy to a charged landscape, this proposal is an address, an effort to carefully construct a proposition for the reclamation of Ocean Terminal Leith. Catalysed by the concurrent ecological and economic crisis’, the project threads disparate yet quietly connected narratives, building incrementally to a schema aimed at forcefully challenging the contemporary clamour for the sites destruction; it is at its heart, an attempt to playfully compel others to speculate on possibilities beyond that which can be seen. Branded as a tober, the schema’s title subtly embraces this lively ambition, clutching a dual meaning. It is a reference to the site of a fairground; a momentary condition; a place in which a form of fantasy brings life to the waste ground upon which it sits. It is also though, a reference to the act of winning a fight, an action registerable as a declaration of intent. A tober then can be considered a place of protest and play, a momentary construction designed to be formative to community and revitalising to place; it is a composite assembly aimed to suit a purpose. Through conversations, readings and engaging with situation, the schema aspires to mirror the tenets of its title, crafting a proposal welcoming of flexibility, embracive of possibility and ephemeral in appearance and nature; the proposition aims to catalyse permanence rather than being an effort of permanence itself. The consequence then is a schema that is suggestive, it is an invite to gather, it is an effort to encourage a moment ‘between the world of building and the world of inhabitation’, recognising that in this lies a potential for expressions that engage ‘the staging of situations’, the fertile fields of intentions and mishappenings, and for fleeting moments of make-believe. Plainly, the schema suggests possibility, it emboldens the imaginary, it is an attempt to construct a landscape filled with resilience and joy.
