|Summary, etc.:|| What does the future hold for traditional rural societies in a rapidly changing world? On Fogo Island, a small speck in the Atlantic off the coast of Newfoundland, sustaining a unique way of life in the face of a collapsing fishing industry is no small challenge. But when local entrepreneur Zita Cobb teams up with renowned architect Todd Saunders to build a one-of-a-kind hotel on a rugged, windswept coastline, they end up creating a strikingly original work of design that will become a catalyst for social and economic change. Experience this staggeringly beautiful place and how the community and local artisans, together with Saunders and Cobb, come together in this creative process during a time of optimism and uncertain hope.
