Five years ago

This time five years ago Dezeen was less than a month old and reported from Design Miami, where Kanye West took time out from snapping up pieces by the Campana Brothers to tell us about his new apartment by minimalist architect Claudio Silvestrin. Back in London we published pictures of the design, our first story to go viral. More on this in our birthday roundup of our most memorable trips!

We also interviewed gallerist Murray Moss and showed new pieces by Barnaby Barford, Maarten Baas and Fredrikson Stallard. Our first attempt at a Friday gossip update noted Justin McGuirk's appointment as editor of Icon magazine (where he stayed until last year) and Marcel Wanders' pool-party antics.

Elsewhere in the world, Frank Gehry launched a new door handle while Foster + Partners released images of their design for the world's biggest tent, later completed in 2010.
