This week on Dezeen: architects and designers were left reeling this week following the UK's dramatic decision to sever ties with the European Union in Thursday's referendum.
The referendum result was close but decisive, with 52 per cent in favour of leaving, and 48 per cent backing the remain campaign. High-profile architects and designers including Richard Rogers, Amanda Levete, Ilse Crawford, Philippe Malouin and Benjamin Hubert expressed their disappointment at the outcome.
An overwhelming majority of creatives had backed the Remain campaign in the buildup to the vote, warning that the UK's economy and London's design status was at risk. Dezeen columnist and architect Sam Jacob described a vote for leave as a vote for a theme park instead of a country.
Illustrators were quick to post their reactions to the referendum on Instagram and Twitter. One image included a bleeding Union Jack flag, while another depicted a pair of scissors cutting the threads that tied the UK to the rest of Europe.
