Things got a little weird in November, as our focus turned to synthetic biology and we featured cheese made from bacteria taken from human noses and tears (pictured) plus new creatures that could save existing species.
Other bizarre stories included bio-surfaces containing "hacked" bacteria that could clean your feet as you walk on them and floor tiles made of coloured snail poo.
Zaha Hadid's Qatar stadium
Zaha Hadid unveiled the design for a stadium to host football games during the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup. Critics and many of our readers compared the Al Wakrah stadium to a vagina, but the architect hit back at the claims and described the comments as "embarrassing" and "ridiculous".
We then compiled a selection of more yonic architecture projects that we'd previously featured.
OMA's De Rotterdam opens
Most clicked in November was underwear designed to stop farts from smelling.
In second place, a proposal to train honey bees to detect cancer "in ten minutes".
Next up was our interview with a leading CGI artist, who told us that images in most kitchen, bathroom and bedroom catalogues are computer-generated but "no-one has realised".
A sinuous structure that won a Chinese bridge competition was fourth most popular.
Then in fifth place were new images of the garden bridge to span the River Thames proposed by Thomas Heatherwick.
We cleaned up during the November award season. Dezeen founder and editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs was named Business Web Editor of the Year by the British Society of Magazine Editors and also made the Hospital Club 100 list of the most influential people in the UK's media and creative industries. To top it off Dezeen scooped Digital Service of the Year at the IBP Awards, bringing our total haul to three awards in less than two weeks.
