Stanley, Falkland Islands

For the first in a new series on outposts of opportunity, Monocle visits Stanley, capital of the Falkland Islands - the British territory best known for sheep and its 1982 war with Argentina. Fuelled by a post-war boom in fishing and tourism, today Stanley is a visually arresting mix of pre-fab houses that arrive on the islands flatpacked in containers. This is how you build a town when you have almost no local materials - and have to battle with ferocious winds.
