The Dezeen and MINI World Tour team landed in New York this week - check out our first movie report with designer Stephen Burks talking about how the city is evolving and watch out for more movies from our trip soon. Meanwhile here are the week's highlights in architecture and design plus track of the week from Dezeen Music Project.
We also showed photos of the New York home and studio of the late American artist Donald Judd, which will open to the public next month following a three-year restoration, and a tap by Philippe Starck that tricks you into thinking you're using more water than you actually are.
We've also been checking out Clerkenwell Design Week in London where Giles Miller installed a pixellated target under a monastic gateway and Vitamin presented lamps made of cable ties.
Barcelona was in the news, with anticipation over its new design museum and outrage over plans for a Dubai-style "space hotel".
Our most popular stories this week featured a Japanese house with a spiralling roof and a hotel and wedding chapel in Miyazaki by Kengo Kuma.
