"A pertinent concentrated effort on the subject of collective housing. The master develops as a series of quick exercises characterized by the creativity and spontaneity of each one of the leaders and professors. Architects like Anne Lacaton, Andrea Deplazes and Alison Brooks, amongst others, share with the participants contemporary ideas and relevant issues which, approached from different backgrounds, result in a wide variety of concepts and solutions. 
 
The study trip to Zurich was an ideal compliment to the theoretical and practical work done in the classroom, where visits to successful housing complexes in the company of the architects and/or inhabitants allowed us to encounter new typologies, models and tectonics. The company of Annette Gigon on a tour through Gigon+Guyer's housing buildings was invaluable. Similarly visiting cooperative housing complexes like Kalkbreite and Hunziker Areal after having been with the designing architects was an eye-opener in terms of economical, social and urban models for housing projects. 
 
Overall, the result of concerting talented professionals around the ever-urgent subject of collective housing births truly valuable theoretical and practical ideas which are an excellent launching platform for development ahead."
