Savioz Fabrizzi - Protective canopy for the archaeological ruins at St. Maurice Abbey, 2010. A large “floating” covering, made of steel mesh and corrugated translucent plastic, is hung from the mountain side via a network of cables and hangs freely from any of the adjacent historical buildings. Thousands of rocks are placed on the canopy, which filters the light to the ruins below, provides the weight to stabilize the canopy from shear forces, and denotes the site’s history of frequent landslides.

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.
