Strange & Familiar: Architecture on Fogo Island

September 24, 2015
The Common at the Two Twenty, 220 20th Street West, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

On sparsely populated Fogo Island, Newfoundland, a world-class development inhabits the rugged coastal landscape. These striking artists’ studios by Norway-based Canadian architect Todd Saunders bring together the past and present culture of the island in an expression of the place that resonates with locales and visitors alike. Strong parallels with the Saskatchewan architectural and arts scene are unmistakeable, and this film illustrates how celebrating the unique characteristics of a relatively unknown place through design can lead to extraordinary results. This film event is part of an effort to provide an ongoing contribution to the local design community and was made possible by the generous support of the RAIC Foundation. Strange & Familiar: Architecture on Fogo Island screens on Thursday, September 24, 2015 at 7:00pm. An introduction and post-discussion will take place, and a cash bar is available. The Common at the Two Twenty is located at 220 20th Street West in Saskatoon. Admission is free, and all are welcome to attend. Watch an enticing trailer of the film here:
