Great Water of Leith Duck Race

On the 5th of September 2010, Hypostyle Architects sponsored a Corporate Duck for the Great Water of Leith Duck Race and Family Funday. The race was organised by the Water of Leith Conservation Trust who work to conserve and enhance the river, its heritage and wildlife. The event raised over £3,000.00 and although the Hypostyle ‘Site Architect’ Duck did not win the race, it did, however, win the ‘Best Dressed Duck’ competition. During the race Hypo Duck ran into difficulties at the second bend, toppled over and lost his blueprints, his hard hat and designer ‘Le Corb’ glasses but managed to get over the finish line.
