This week on Dezeen...

This week Steve Jobs resigned as CEO of Apple amid a flurry of praise for his contributions to the design world, although Dezeen readers slammed designs for the new Apple headquarters by Foster + Partners only last week.

Zaha Hadid released new images of her enormous retail complex for Beijing, Henning Larsen Architects completed the Harpa Concert and Conference Centre in Reykjavík and we rounded up all our stories about interiors that don't quite look finished.

Herzog & de Meuron finally launched a website, although it didn't go down too well on Twitter. www.zaha-hadid.com and www.rosslovegrove.com have also had recent makeovers - tell us what you think here.

Meanwhile Molo's paper partitions for disaster relief centres prompted debate over how effort should be expended in times of crisis

Over on Dezeen Screen there's an animation of the two memorial fountains on the World Trade Centre site in New York, due to open next month.
