The UK's housing crisis became the hot topic this week, as readers reacted to Phineas Harper's first Opinion column for Dezeen.
Crisis: in his column last week, Harper argued that the term "housing crisis" has become a catch-all excuse for self-serving projects. Readers have interjected, giving their opinions on the role that governments, private-sector property developers and architects play in residential developments.
Facelift: Spanish firm Carquero Arquitectura received a 2016 Architizer A+Award for this restoration of a crumbling hilltop castle near Cádiz, and readers felt the prize was well deserved.
Yoyo Ito: commenters couldn't agree on whether to describe this cavernous opera house in Taiwan by Toyo Ito as a masterpiece or the Japanese architect's "weakest work ever".
Mix and match: Benjamin Hubert has become the first British designer to create a product for Danish brand Fritz Hansen. But some readers think he could have been more ambitious with his design, which comes in 8,000 possible combinations.
