Connectivity and 'Green' Craft: Exploring the Infrastructure and Architecture of the Faroe Islands By Danielle S. Willkens, 2015 H. Allen Brooks Travelling Fellow
October 25, 2016
On one particularly foggy morning, my explorations through the Faroe Islands started with an unexpected scene. I was staying in Hoyvík, a suburb of the capital of Tórshavn on Streymoy, and as I traveled down the winding road from my rented room, I watched a series of red-faced pre-teens run up the hill. Their teachers, bundled together in a car and assisted by warm cups of coffee, were sitting at the base of the hill, marking the students’ arms with a Sharpie as they passed to record the completion of another lap around the neighborhood school.
