The Weather Yesterday  by Troika

The rain is still pouring down this week and Londoners have become even more obsessed by the weather than usual, with Troika's board that lets you compare the current situation with the day before (above) and Michael Robinson's souvenir poster (below).

We're also stocking Ella Doran's summery umbrellas (below) at Dezeen Super Store and you can see pictures of the opening party last night on Facebook. Still, all this precipitation is good for the garden...

On that note, our most popular story this week features a facade covered in plants (below) and you can see all our favourite images of greenery on Pinterest.

In more serious news, Gijs Bakker and all three masters heads left the Design Academy Eindhoven, Apple lost a court case accusing Samsung of copying the iPad because the judge thought the Galaxy Tab (below) was "not as cool" and crowd-funding platform Kickstarter launched in the UK.

Our most controversial story this week features a visitor centre under construction at Stonehenge in the UK (below), which readers are calling "shameful" and "foolish".

Meanwhile some of the stranger things we've shown this week include a call centre covered in QR codes, a holiday home on a sledge and a "transformer building" with flapping, insect-like wings (below).

    Those Ella Doran summery umbrellas are extremely pretty not to mention really useful thanks to the horrendous weather we’re having. That plant-covered building facade is fantastic too.
