Act Romegialli Architects built the ‘Green box’ as the renovation of a small disused garage, an accessory to a weekend house situated on the slopes of the Raethian Alps. A structure realized with lightweight metal galvanized profiles and steel wires wraps the existent volume and transforms it into a three-dimensional support for the climbing vegetation. It is composed mainly by deciduos vegetation. Inside the pavillion provides a room for the gardening tools, an area for cooking and a space for conviviality. Materials are left rough and simple; galvanized steel for the kitchen, larch planks for flooring and big sliding doors, windows in unpainted galvanized steel, simple pipes for the water supply. To us it seems to be the perfect little retreat.

"They’re loving, they’re in love. Not necessarily that they’re gay, or in or out of any closet. In a child’s world, if you truly love somebody, it doesn’t matter at all. These two kids, I think would actually die for each other. And I think they’re probably the most happy of any of the other people. These kids are dreadfully honest to each other, which is something you didn’t realize kids are, and adults wish they could be. It’s funny, some people love Walter and Perry, they go crazy for them, but some people fucking hate them, get them off, get onto the next scene as quickly as possible. My dad hates them, he’s absolutely annoyed with them, but my mother loves them. But me and Jon Benjamin do the voices of Walter and Perry and we’ll probably go off for forty minutes in those voices and get the giggles ultimately and not be able to finish."

If any of you watch home movies and caught my previous post about hating walter and perry: listen.
They are some goddamn annoying characters. I understand the “best friends forever” thing, and even the not so subtle homoerotic jokes.
But I hate noise annoyances and their voices make me want to punch things.
So, in conclusion, get bent.

"Don’t worry about your body.
It isn’t as small as it once was,
But honestly, the world needs more of you.
You look in the mirror
like you’ve done something wrong,
But you look perfect.
Anyone who says otherwise is telling a lie
to make you feel weak.
And you know better.
You’ve survived every single day,
for as long as you’ve been alive.
You could spit fire if you wanted."
