This week on Dezeen

This week Dezeen has been all about skyscrapers, with towers by 15 of the world's most famous architects for a new business district in Seoul plus a timelapse movie and interview with architect Renzo Piano as his 300 metre-high tower The Shard nears completion in London.

Our most controversial story featured the completed ArcelorMittal Orbit sculpture by Anish Kapoor for the London 2012 Olympic park, which horrified readers and drew comparisons with an "evil scientist's lair". With all the permanent structures for the Olympics now complete we rounded them up in one handy slideshow.

Our Designed in Hackney showcase turned its attention to fashion this week with collections by the likes of Christopher Kane, Gareth Pugh and Hussein Chalayan. Meanwhile Dezeen Music Project had its first gig in Shoreditch for the opening of tokyobike's new store - see photos from the event on Facebook.

We also ran a series of movies announcing the call for exhibitors at this year’s World Architecture Festival in Singapore from 3-5 October, with programme director Paul Finch introducing WAF and talking about past winners of the festival's World Building of the Year award.
