The Details

Name: Animals in the City!

Location: Shandwick Place

Created By: Danielle Callaghan

Sponsor: Lothian Buses

Design Inspiration

The animals of Edinburgh Zoo are taking a trip across town! Some have hopped onto Lothian buses and trams, others are skating, cycling and rowing. Can you spot a lion on a bike? What about a roller skating hippo? Is that a koala on the bus? Danielle Callaghan’s design ‘Animals in the City!’ is inspired by the many green modes of transport we have to explore our city, from our fabulous buses and trams, to the Union canal and our tree-lined cycle paths. Danielle hopes you will enjoy spotting your favourite animal making its way across Edinburgh.
