Casa Clara in Brasilia

From the architects 1:1 Arquitetura Design:

This house; Casa Clara, is mainly a small house, strong personality and clear solution (clear means Clara in Portuguese). The entire house is delicately supported on the downhill terrain. The landscape have a free view from the interior, even the layout is clear, simple solution with elegant design, in some ways this house is very minimal.

The ‘Cobogó” (Brazilian void concrete block) have an important role, guaranteeing the privacy of the occupants, this material also have some control of the afternoon insulation, as a void material this block allows the occupants to appreciate the wonderful sunset in Brasilia.

Portuguese!Grantaire

Okay just bear with me my fellow trash

 - He isn’t portuguese technically. His grandparents escaped from Salazar dictatorship to france as everyone did back then. His own dad was born in france. So yeah he is french. But he still has that hot portuguese blood and lord help us all.

- He used to go to portugal every summer when he was little. His own dad speaked portuguese in his house because that’s what happens, we are assholes and speak our language in our homes and then go back to our country and speak french just because we are lil shits. So yeah Grantaire knows portuguese. His vó would kill him if he didn’t.

- When he is stressed he starts talking in portuguese because other people can’t understand him and that makes him feel safer. 

- When he hurts himself he just screams “caralho”.

- No one of les amis knew that was exactly cursing and they thought it was a beautiful word. Till R is like “you know that is like the most normal portuguese cursing word right?” And everyone starts using it as well and its adorable.

- He actually knows a lot of portuguese history and when marius is being an idiot about Napoleon he just clears his throat and be like “Well my people kicked his ass 3 times he ain’t that great”. (also enjolras screams there that that aint the point that Napoleon was bad because he was bad).

- The only time he was vocal about a cause it was about the immigrants and refugees. No one ever saw him like that. He was talking with everyone and defending that cause and one night Enjolras comes to him and aks why its so important for him and Grantaire just smiles and says: “My grandparents escaped from the dictatorship. They were refugees in France. I can’t let that be forgotten.” So yeah Enjolras kind of fell in love with him a bit more.

- HE CALLS CORAÇÃO (heart) TO EVERY LES AMIS BECAUSE PORTUGUESE PEOPLE ARE THAT AFFECTIONATE.

- First time he calls “amor” (love) to Enjolras, he almost dies. Because that sounds so much better than in french and he loves french. But the way Grantaire lips move when he talks portuguese is something that makes Enjy weak.

- He just curses in portuguese. Forget french. He is just caralho, merda, puta que te pariu, filho da puta, cona, cara de pila, etc. 

- And everyone thinks that is beautiful.

- He likes to say shit like “oh in portuguese you dont say ____ you say __(something that has nothing to do and its probably a dirty joke)__. Because he is an adorable liltle shit.

- HE KNOWS HOW TO COOK PORTUGUESE FOOD AND COURF LOVED IT. AND HE LOVES TO COOK TO EVERYONE AND GET EVERYONE AROUND A TABLE BECAUSE THEY ARE FAMILY AND THAT IS A TYPICAL SUNDAY WITH THE FAMILY.

- He loves the beach and gets cranky in summer because the sea calls for him.

- He loves Fernando Pessoa so much. So so much. Cause hey no one was more emo than him.

- Sometimes he sings fado and everyone is looking at him and awe because damn R voice is amazing but in portuguese??? They can hear something more even if they dont understand a third of the words.

- just portuguese!grantaire

Sebastian I was King of Portugal and the Algarves from 11 June 1557 to 4 August 1578 and the penultimate Portuguese monarch of the House of Aviz.

After attaining his majority in 1568, Sebastian, drawn the stories of the country’s past glories, dreamed of a great crusade against Morocco. A Moroccan succession struggle gave him the opportunity, despite having no son and heir and after being advised several times not to do it.

The Portuguese army of 17,000 men, and almost all of the country’s nobility, sailed at the beginning of June from Lisbon, visited Cadiz, where they expected to find the Spanish volunteers, who failed to appear, then crossed into Morocco. Sebastian was almost certainly killed in the battle (battle of Alcácer-Quibir), as well as the most of the nobles. This had tremendous impacts in Portugal, and in addition, the Spanish king took advantage and claimed the throne (they were relatives), which led to an invasion and subsequent incorporation of Portugal to Spain. The Iberian Union lasted 60 years.

Several soldiers returned to Portugal, which, added to uncertainty over Sebastian’s fate, led many Portuguese to believe Sebastian had survived the battle and would return to claim his throne. This led to Sebastianism: the belief that Sebastian could return at any moment. He would then be known by symbolic names: O Encoberto (The Hidden One) who would return on a foggy morning to save Portugal; or as O Desejado (The Desired One). The legend was vigorously promoted through the massive circulation of popular rhymes (trovas) written by António Gonçalves de Bandarra.

In December 2011, the historian Maria Luísa Martins da Cunha argued that King Sebastian survived the battle and reappeared in 1598, in Italy, and was arrested in Venice, Florence and Naples, with the complicity of the Spanish.

A COLIN MORGAN SCENE MASTERPOST

My YouTube account containing all scenes of Colin Morgan in his projects has been terminated. Fortunately, I uploaded most of the videos separately to Tumblr. Not all of them, however: all the videos from The Tempest are gone forever (unless I find time to make them again, but I doubt it), and some of the longer The Fall scenes are gone.

If you click ‘Keep reading’ below, you’ll find all the scenes of Colin Morgan in Island, Parked, Quirke, Testament of Youth, and Humans. Most, but not all, of his scenes from The Fall are also there, as well as a compilation of every single scene he appeared in in BBC Radio 1′s Good Omens (with transcripts!).

Enjoy!
