This week on Dezeen

This week Google opened a campus for startups in east London, Yves Bahar launched a bigger and louder version of his Jambox wireless speaker and BIG unveiled designs for a tower block shaped like a hashtag.

Meanwhile we've been busy editing the interviews we filmed at Dezeen Studio in Milan and you can now watch the full-length movies on Dezeen Screen, including Zaha Hadid on projects she has in the pipeline, Joseph Grima on how crowd-sourcing and open design are reshaping industry and Justin McGuirk on the future of design criticism.

Our most popular story was a glass house in Belgium with a sunken swimming pool in front, closely followed by our series of stories about artists' studios on a Canadian island.

Continuing our feature on design from Dezeen's neighbourhood we've brought you movies on open-source design from Hackney designers, with a house you can download and a musical instrument to make at home, plus a range of alternative souvenirs for visitors to east London during the Olympic games. Meanwhile, on the other side of town, Chelsea Football Club have offered to take over the ruins of Battersea Power Station.

Follow us on Twitter and Facebook for regular updates and discussions throughout the week, and check out Pinterest where you can browse all the best images of libraries from the Dezeen archives, or just look at all the weird food we've published.
