Strange and Familiar: Architecture on Fogo Island

Architect Todd Saunders’s buildings on Fogo Island, Newfoundland embrace the excitement of being on the edge of nature and contemporary design while fulfilling the goal of doing ‘new things with old ways.’

Saunders and his commissioner, Zita Cobb, provide a personal account of the ideas and traditions that inspire this bold and socially ambitious architectural venture. Gorgeously photographed, the film is a flowing, visual narrative that unfolds over seven seasons as the Fogo Island Inn approaches completion.
