Five years ago...

Five years ago this week Olafur Eliasson and Snøhetta unveiled their proposals for the 2007 Serpentine Gallery Pavilion and Herzog & de Meuron announced plans to create a new football stadium for English team Portsmouth FC that were abandoned shortly after.

OMA started work on a study into urban growth in the Gulf, the results of which were presented recently as part of an exhibition documenting the firm's working processes and lighting designer Stuart Haygarth designed a children's nightlight filled with toys for a charity auction.

Elsewhere on Dezeen we published even more high-profile projects that we'd seen in Milan, which included door handles designed by Zaha Hadid and John Pawson and a conceptual Corian home imagined by Jean Nouvel, as well as some of our favourites, such as set of  battery-powered lights covered in dandelion seeds and a cupboard with a billboard-style rotating front.
