Introducing a new feature on Dezeen: here's a roundup of the top stories, news, comments and movies this week.

Our most hotly debated story was about an upside-down skyscraper designed to neighbour the Hoover Dam - you can join the discussion here. Other stories that caused a stir included stools created in an explosion and an absurdly cantilevered Berlin hotel. Check out all our stories about alarming cantilevers here.

Meanwhile the RIBA revealed this year's Stirling Prize shortlist, UK designers joined forces to promote design education in schools and Palestinian business leaders announced plans to launch a national brand.

Over on Dezeen Watch Store we've got the Mercury watch by Ziiiro in new colours.

Highlights from Dezeen Screen include an interview about collecting and foraging with designer Faye Toogood and a low-tech version of a laser cutter by Markus Kayser, one of our favourites from this year's Royal College of Art graduate show.
