This week's highlights include starchitects excavating a London park, a movie involving Dita Von Teese and a stiletto and a chocolate penis... read on for full details of the week on Dezeen.

Herzog & de Meuron and Ai Weiwei unveiled their designs for this summer’s Serpentine Gallery Pavilion, and David Chipperfield spoke to Dezeen about curating the Venice Architecture Biennale.

Meanwhile Dezeen was named one of the top five design sites in the world according to business magazine Forbes.com and we were shortlisted for the Association of Online Publishers Awards.

Readers wondered where to have sex in a house with hardly any walls and marvelled at a giant set of shelves for stacking up smaller buildings into a skyscraper. Having noticed infrastructure projects by J. Mayer H. popping up all over Georgia recently, we compiled them into one handy slideshow.

Our most-watched movie showed the making of a hologram where burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese morphs into a shoe and our most-clicked story is not for the faint-hearted or anyone under 18.

Our series of interviews from Dezeen Studio in Milan continues with MoMA curator Paola Antonelli on the new spirit of experimentation and performance in design, and Elle Decoration UK editor Michelle Ogundehin on her Equal Rights for Design campaign to change copyright law.

Designed in Hackney this week focussed on world-class design from Shoreditch furniture company SCP, while Dezeen Music Project skipped from Jamaica to Germany and from tribal sounds to brooding whispered vocals.
