UNFORGETTABLE STUDY TRIPS

For me the best part of the master is when you get to interact closer to the architects by visiting their offices, making field trips and actually standing in projects made by them.

WORKSHOPS ARE THE BEST PART

 I learnt a lot during my time at the MCH, especially during workshops. They were totally my favorite part of the master because we as architects had to push our knowledge and design skills to the edge to quickly experiment and solve problems in a short time period. The professors were impressive and all of them taught me something unique architectural related.
