Todd Saunders

The transformation of Fogo Island into a high end tourist destination will be aided in part by Todd Saunders - the internationally renown architect who grew up in Gander.

He's already finished an uber-modern artist's residence, and now a 29 -room hotel is in the works.

Saunders is known more in Norway than he is here, where he has created award winning structures.

If you want to get an idea of his work, you can find it at his website
