This week on Dezeen

This week on Dezeen our most popular story was the redesign of McDonald's interiors in France by Patrick Norguet, which encouraged readers to suggest that they redesign their food next, while a mountain lodge that you can ski over by Fantastic Norway also attracted plenty of attention.

The week's more bizarre offerings included a proposal for a tower built by flying robots and a walkway that looks like a rollercoaster, while a house in Hiroshima by Suppose Design Office provoked discussion on the introverted tendency of Japanese houses to block out the surrounding neighbourhood.

We've announced more designers and brands taking part in our Christmas shop The Temporium and added Braun's BNoo35 watch to the collection available at Dezeen Watch Store.

We also featured the faceted new wing at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and reported on up-and-coming design nation Israel, including shoes that look like inflatable sex dolls.

Meanwhile, the construction of New York's September 11 museum was stalled by a dispute over finances, renowned design agency Airside announced that it will close next year and Renzo Piano explained why Londoners will love his skyscraper, The Shard. Bjarke Ingels Group and Paris studio OFF won a competition to build a research centre in Paris and UNStudio designed a new airport for the Georgian city of Kutaisi.

Over on Dezeen Screen designer Jerszy Seymour explained his Workshop Chair made of wood joined with blobs of wax and we published more video interviews with category winners from this year's Inside awards.
