This week on Dezeen

Our most popular story this week featured a steel-plated house with a drawbridge-like flap that one reader thought might come in useful in a zombie apocalypse. Other hotly debated stories included a Mumbai office block sandwiched between a corporate complex and a slum and a leaning house with a tree growing inside.

Meanwhile we revealed the first image of the kilometre-high Kingdom Tower, which is set to become the world's tallest building, whilst sales of air-conditioned clothing continued to increase in Japan as a result of power shortages.

Highlights from Dezeen Screen include interviews with designers and curators at the Blickfang designworkshop in Viennaan undulating landscape of CDs that carpet a former funeral home, and a glow-in-the-dark report.

Over on Dezeen Watch Store we're now stocking Jak, the second watch by New York designer Karim Rashid for Italian brand Alessi.
