Strange & Familiar : Architecture on Fogo Island

Architect Todd Saunders’ sculpture-like artist studios perched on the rocky shores of Fogo Island created a buzz among worldwide architecture fans when the first images were released. Since then, the four artists studios and the new Fogo Island Inn have been documented in more than 80 international magazines and blogs ranging from the New York Times Magazine, to fashion arbiter Wallpaper to architectural magazines such as Domus.
Gorgeously photographed over all four seasons the film is a flowing, visual narrative that unfolds over time as the Fogo Island Inn is being constructed. This is a portrait of a little island that wants to be relevant in a big and current way.
