Intense and rigorous program

MCH has given me a vast knowledge of what as professionals in the world do in a very intense and rigorous working method. The course has given us the opportunity to examine and approach a situation in a responsive and creative method which I find is the key to broaden the understanding of architecture and add it in our professional palette.
