This week last year two architectures students unveiled plans for aÂ company that enables illegal migration and our most popular and controversial story was about aÂ giant, latticed canopy by J. Mayer H.Â that wasÂ described as clumsy, grotesqueÂ andÂ overbearingly monumental,Â as well as sublime and gutsy.
Our readers also had a lot to say about anÂ anvil-shaped museum with a windowless tiled facade, which many thought bore an uncanny resemblance to Selfridges inÂ Birmingham.
Over in Tokyo, architectÂ Emmanuelle Moureaux completedÂ another project with her trademark rainbow of colours, this time a bank, while back in the Dezeen office we were busy deciding which colour gradients we'd prefer forÂ a set of stackable stationary.
Following our week in Milan we also featuredÂ a few more of the best projects from the show, which included a sofa that can be reconfigured using a touch padÂ andÂ a chair made fromÂ recycled clothes, as well as stone andÂ aluminumÂ furniture by Studio Toogood and a button-studded chair by Studio Job.
The most popular movie of the week on Dezeen Screen was a beautiful video showing the installation of a chandelier by Canadian lighting company Bocci.
