This week on Dezeen: the launch of the Pokémon GO augmented reality video game changed the way players interacted with cities and buildings, and brands began releasing products to help players "catch 'em all".
Pokémon GO – which involves capturing cartoon creatures overlaid onto the players' surroundings via their smartphone – is leading to "strange, wonderful and disturbing" interactions and experiences with the environment, said Alex Wilshire in an Opinion column for Dezeen.
The game's release prompted tech brand TRNDlabs to customise its miniature drone so players can access Pokémon in difficult places and avoid walking into hazards.
ZHA director Patrik Schumacher said the UK's departure from the European Union offers "the chance to evolve a more open, immigration-friendly society and economy", while Sadie Morgan called on the British government to stick to its infrastructure investment plans as it prepares to leave the EU.
In London, Thomas Heatherwick was appointed to design new stand for Fulham Football Club but the city's mayor suspended construction of the designer's Garden Bridge over funding concerns.
