This week on Dezeen

This week on Dezeen we reported from the Inside awards in Barcelona, where a hotel in a former Japanese Army headquarters by NHDRO walked away with the top prize.

glass bedroom on the shoreline in Finland was the most popular story with Dezeen readers this week, along with a sculptural pavilion for viewing wild reindeer by Norwegian architects Snøhetta, described in one comment as "the stuff of fairy tales."

Foster + Partners unveiled an ambitious plan for a transportation hub in the Thames estuary, OMA added a new building to Cornell University's historic campus in New York and BFLS designed a new college building in Cardiff with a wing-like metal roof.

We compiled a collection of stories on all things tree-like and featured some more projects from Dutch Design Week. We also announced that we'll be running a pop-up design store in London this Christmas - see the story for details on how to apply.

Over on Dezeen Screen we presented an animation of our Dezeen Book of Ideas and designer Bobby Petersen's film made at the Victoria and Albert Museum showed his chairs that play music when people sit on them.

The winners of the World Architecture Festival awards were announced and we rounded up critics' reactions to Foster + Partners' Thames Hub and a new exhibition of Soviet art and architecture at London's Royal Academy.
