6th May 2016: Design News Round-Up

A collection of all our favourite design and architecture news from the first week of May 2016.


What's On

It’s been another week packed with exciting design news and architectural innovations! In the past seven days, RIBA London has announced the winners of its regional awards with 36 winning schemes being drawn. From Japanese fusion design to an amazing garden house, the winners can all be viewed here.

As well as the prestigious RIBA London awards, this week also saw design plans for Cannes Film Festival take shape. During Director’s Fortnight, 85 foam blocks, which have been created to look like concrete by Smarin, will be arranged on a private beach. Designed to be easily moved and rearranged, the blocks will create a stylish and flexible seating area for those enjoying the festival.

An amazing clifftop house also captured our imaginations this week. We love this Texan property’s open-plan layout and stunning panoramic views!
