Our most popular story of the week featured a cliff-top house inspired by a Picasso painting but our favourites were a kiosk at Grand Central made from torn copies of the New York Times, a community built around public toilets and a robot that steals your covers in the morning and poos all over the floor.
Over on Dezeen Screen there's an interview with Hong Kong designer Andre Fu, a robot that steals your duvet in the morning and poos all over the floor and a very popular series of movies about folding techniques for designers.
