One year ago...

This time last year the Venice Architecture Biennale was underway, where Rem Koolhaas was awarded the Golden Lion as OMA unveiled their design for the renovation of the Fondaco dei Tedeschi in Venice

Our favourite pavilions included a forest of acrylic fronds that moved as though breathing in the Canadian pavilion, a cloud suspended inside the Arsenale exhibition space and a blue foam model city in the Dutch pavilion.

Meanwhile we previewed the new identity for Dezeen Watch Store, which launched the following month.

Umbro released the new England Home Kit by graphic design legend Peter Saville, Biomega presented a range of bicycles for Puma, C. F. Møller won a competition to design a new ferry terminal for Stockholm and Álvaro Siza completed the Mimesis Museum in South Korea.
