This week last year two architectures students unveiled plans for a¬†company that enables illegal migration and our most popular and controversial story was about a¬†giant, latticed canopy by J. Mayer H.¬†that was¬†described as clumsy, grotesque¬†and¬†overbearingly monumental,¬†as well as sublime and gutsy.
Our readers also had a lot to say about an¬†anvil-shaped museum with a windowless tiled facade, which many thought bore an uncanny resemblance to Selfridges in¬†Birmingham.
Over in Tokyo, architect¬†Emmanuelle Moureaux completed¬†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 for¬†a set of stackable stationary.
Following our week in Milan we also featured¬†a few more of the best projects from the show, which included a sofa that can be reconfigured using a touch pad¬†and¬†a chair made from¬†recycled clothes, as well as stone and¬†aluminum¬†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.
