This week on Dezeen

This week Renzo Piano completed a minimal monastery at the site of Le Corbusier’s chapel of Notre-Dame du Haut, Daniel Libeskind added an angular extension to Dresden's Museum of Military History and UNStudio designed a cantilevered concrete observation tower.

Rafael Viñoly talked to us about his new arts centre in Colchester and the most viewed story of the week was a simple house with a four metre-high door by Archiplan.

Also this week, Yves Béhar of fuseproject designed a tricycle with built-in storage and Sam Hecht of Industrial Facility created a hand carved rubber pen with a gold nib.

The RIBA Future Trends Survey contained some concerning statistics for architectural practices, the shortlist was announced for this year's Prince Philip Designers Prize and we rounded up the best bits from the London Design Festival and Beijing Design Week.
