纽芬兰,福戈岛工作室/Saunders Architecture

福戈岛位于圣劳伦斯海湾与大西洋相汇的地方,在地理上是全球的稀有宝地。在这个小岛上,海水拍击着岩石,青草结满了寒霜,只有周围的薄雾才能稍稍证明天空和大海之间还有一点点屏障。建筑师要求在这个结构——现代纽芬兰最先进的建筑作品之一——中体现小岛的一个断面。这座棱角分明的工作室坐落在陡峭的岩石上,旁边就是汹涌的海浪,岩石与海浪正是加拿大最常见也是最美丽的风景之一。游客在每一个方向上都能看到新颖独特的景观,周围的全景对于那些非常幸运的客人来说几乎是具有异域特质的。


Where the Gulf of St. Lawrence meets the Atlantic, the island of Fogo is a rare gem of global geography. Rock meets water, frost meets grass and the surrounding mists provide little evidence of a barrier between sky and sea. The architects at Bent Rene´Synnevåg laid claim to a section of the island in this structure, one of the most progressive works of architecture in modern Newfoundland. This sharp, angular abode rises above craggy rock and angry surf, a duo that meet to form one of Canada’s most barren-yet-beautiful landscapes. In every direction, a new and unique landscape meets its visitors eye, a panorama of land that appears almost alien to its very lucky guests.
