A group of small buildings on Fogo Island off the Newfoundland coast has helped to revive the island's culture and economy. They were commissioned from Canadian architect Todd Saunders and his Berlin-based firm, and featured in the 2014 film Strange & Familiar: Architecture on Fogo Island. Lynn Freeman talks to Todd, who is in New Zealand to speak at the Institute of Architects conference. He's also one of the New Zealand's Home of the Year competition judges.
