Continuing our review of the year, the restoration of the Cutty Sark tea clipper by Grimshaw was our most-read story in April, plus we set up Dezeen Studio in Milan.
Made you look! An April fools story by Dowling Jones and Stone proposing a floating motorway to ease congestion during the London Olympics caught our readers' attention.
A twisted tower proposed by BIG for an area of downtown Vancouver was our third most popular story of the month.
In at four it's Storage House by Ryuji Fjimura Architects, a four-storey house in Kanagawa, Japan, lined with bookcases.
Completing our April line-up is Skinspace, a studio and living space with wooden scales designed for an artist in South Korea by AND.
Also in April, the London 2012 Olympic Torch by east London designers BarberOsgerby (above) was awarded as Design of the Year at the Design Museum ahead of the London 2012 OLympics, rumours emerged that Philippe Starck was designing a boat for the late Steve Jobs (later completed in October and now the centre of a dispute over an unpaid design bill) and the MAXXI museum in Rome went into financial meltdown just 18 months after its Zaha Hadid-designed building won the Stirling Prize.
The Dezeen team was in Milan for the furniture faire, where we set up Dezeen Studio at MOST where we filmed a daily TV show and interviews with designers including Zaha Hadid (above) Tom Dixon and Faye Toogood - watch all the movies from Dezeen Studio at MOST here.
