This week on Dezeen

This week MVRDV caused a commotion by designing two towers engulfed in a pixellated cloud that put readers in mind of the World Trade Centre's destruction on September 11. Meanwhile UNStudio unveiled designs for a Singapore skyscraper with chunks missing from its facade. 

Artist Olafur Eliasson designed fort-like banking headquarters to rise out of the sea and Thomas Heatherwick completed a Hong Kong shopping centre with waves of stone parting either side of the entrance.

On Dezeen Wire Herman Hertzberger was named as the recipient of this year’s Royal Gold Medal for architecture - we've rounded up his key projects here - and a sci-fi animation about robots took home of the RIBA President’s Medals Student Awards.

We also published images of Red Bull's new Amsterdam headquarters, a cantilevered refuge that looks like a giant cola can balanced on the edge of a mountain and a roundup of all our stories on fast food joints.

Our Advent calendar of products and offers from The Temporium continues with chocolate moustaches, dolls based on children's drawings, musical badges, paper laptop cases and much more - see all our stories about The Temporium exhibitors here and visit us at 65 Monmouth Street, Seven Dials, Covent Garden London WC2H 9DG until 24 December.

On Dezeen Screen our series of Dezeen Talks at the Inside awards continues with Lyndon Neri of Neri & Hu, who scooped the overall award for their hotel Waterhouse at South Bund.

There's still another week to get your orders in on Dezeen Watch Store before Christmas - check out new designs by VOID, Ziiiro and Michael Young online or in person at The Temporium.
