This week Thomas Heatherwick unveiled the prototype of his New Bus for London, Snøhetta released proposals for a Maggie’s cancer care centre in Aberdeen and Foster + Partners won a competition to design a high-speed rail station in northwest Spain.

Readers decided Zaha Hadid's car park for Miami beach must have been designed with action movie settings in mind and two New York designers sent us pictures of their handy riot-shield-cum-coffee-table invention.

English heritage announced that the iconic 1986 Lloyd’s of London building designed by Richard Rogers is to be given Grade I listed status and a team of Dutch designers including Hella Jongerius, architect Rem Koolhaas and graphic designer Irma Boom were selected to re-design the North Delegates’ Lounge at the United Nations headquarters in New York.

We counted down the last few days of our Christmas shop The Temporium, which closes at 3pm tomorrow, and you can watch Dezeen editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs give a tour of the shop on Dezeen Screen.
