In 2013, architect Travis Price and his students from The Catholic University of America designed an architectural installation on the island of Inishturk in Ireland. The studio, Spirit of Place, explores the connection between culture, landscape and the unique history of its inhabitants bringing back meaning into modern architecture – a new architecture of the 21st century.  Over nine days, the students build a memorial on this remote, sparsely populated island, interweaving the construction with profiles of the people who live on Inishturk. Tale of the Tongs presents an insight into this emerging cultural landscape of modern architecture. Directed by Judith and Stanley Hallet.
