One year ago...

One year ago Dezeen readers looked ahead to the apocalypse, when an armoured cabin might come in handy, while Frank Gehry unveiled controversial designs for a business school with a crumpled-up facade.

We featured a chair made from squashed-up fibre cement and a pair of 3D-printed shoes that one reader called "blister-tastic".

Meanwhile, a youth hostel filled with fabric bedroom pods opened in a former factory in Italy and a futuristic, cave-like bar made a few readers feel nauseous.

We revealed the news that industrial designer James Dyson was succeeding Terence Conran as Provost of London’s Royal College of Art and our most popular stories of the week were a pair of idyllic houses - one in Portugal with disguised doors and another in Australia with a wood-panelled exterior.
