Now for something a bit different: this afternoon I made a site visit to our residential development west of Calgary, Carraig Ridge. Y house, designed by architect Todd Saunders, started construction this fall, and the foundation walls are now complete. Stay tuned for more photos as construction progresses - things are going to get interesting soon! . . . #house #alberta #rockies #foothills #landscape #saundersarchitecture #mountainlife #country #residentialarchitecture #foundation #concrete

In 1967 Colin Low directed a short documentary called ‘The Children of Fogo Island’ for the National Film Board of Canada. The 17-minute-long film is a portrait of the life of children in the 60s in this remote fishing community at the edge of the North Atlantic in Newfoundland, Canada. In some ways, the story of the film is a story of Newfoundland. It’s the story of a group of kids who are finding their way in an unforgiving landscape. Conditions in Newfoundland can be harsh. Living there, especially in the middle of the last century and before, was often a matter of survival. That's the wonder of Fogo Island. It's a place where the insulating layers of our lives are pulled back. The amenities and conveniences and obstructions to the wild and sometimes brutal natural world are peeled back by necessity. There's nothing between you and the cold whiteness of Greenland when you look out at the North Atlantic. And winter is even better. The contrast between the warmth of the fire and the people of the inn compared with the cold of the salty air of the ocean makes both more powerful. When you’re in a place like this, you are somehow forced out of yourself. All the people who have settled in this place, from the early Indigenous to the Europeans and beyond, found themselves in a place whose ancient and indifferent glacier-scraped rock offered no sympathy. They had to stand on both feet, literally, to withstand the occasional storm force gales. But they had to keep moving with both feet too. One foot keeping them grounded and the other forging ahead. ~ @paddyharrington curator for The Art of Walking Upright adventure in awe on Fogo Island. Pictured here: @angelbirdflight as a literal force of nature, the winter sea goddess, forging a mighty path from land to the sea. 📷 @nadinewellss . . . #fogoislandinn #angelbirdflight #saundersarchitecture #fogoisland #joebattsarm #newfoundlandandlabrador #adventureinawe #nomadicschoolofwonder

#repost @saundersarchitecture (NSCAD BDes 1992 / DFA 2016) Returning to Fogo Island in seven days. I will be giving a lecture @fogoislandinn with @nomadicschoolofwonder December 7-12. My talk will be about the importance of intuition during creative processes. // The title of the gathering is : "The Art of Walking Upright. It is a five-night, six-day gathering and deep immersion into the community of Fogo Island. Together, we'll explore a more natural, essential way of being, living and belonging in a place you can't quite believe but always hoped existed" . #saundersarchitecture #toddsaunders #fogoislandinn #newfoundland @newfoundlandlabrador @enroutemag @explorecanada @natgeotravel photo @robsouthscott of our latest building called The Fogo Island Shed. #saundersarchitecture #toddsaunders #fogoisland #newfoundland #canada . . #nscad #nscaduniversity #iamnscad #nscadalumni @nscadaa

Zita Cobb, founder of @shorefastfogoisland & innkeeper @fogoislandinn shared her insights on “fish, art & economics” with us during our “The Art of Walking Upright” gathering on Fogo Island. An ocean full of gratitude to Zita & the Fogo Island Inn team for hosting our nomadic troupe of merrymakers and for welcoming us back with such warmth, openness and true community. We always come away from our time on Fogo Island feeling more deeply connected to magic, wonder and the portal of possibility we open up together at the edge of the earth. Thank you for sharing your stories, friendship and way of being in the world. With our admiration & love ~ 🌊🌊🌊 . . . #zitacobb #fogoislandinn #shorefastfoundation #saundersarchitecture #joebattsarm #fogoisland #community #fisharteconomics #cauliflower #theartofwalkingupright #adventureinawe
