"The MCH experience is coming to an end, with only one specialty to finish I can now conclude that this master has pushed my limits in ways I never imagined. The specialties and mainly the workshops push us to develop projects throughout different approaches. Each teacher has a completely different way of working which incentivizes the students to work outside their comfort zone. We work hand in hand with every architects worst enemy: time. To achieve the best possible project result in an extremely condensed lapse of time. Making the master an extremely intensive working period.
Architects tend to be highly competitive which can make the ambience in a master very dense, a great strategy to avoid this tension is that teammates are sorted out in every project. You get to know your classmates, each persons strengths, weaknesses and who complements with your own way of working. With a very international point of view and age range each member contributes something new to the class.
The workshop professors have shared amazing knowledge and have guided us in an intensive week to get the best results possible. The multicultural point of views enrich the experience. 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. The Zurich trip will of course be remembered by all, by far the most exhausting yet enriching week of the master. The ETH campus is one of the greatest architectural spaces in the city, I extremely enjoyed this visit.
MCH has submerged me in a whole different architectural experience that I know will help me develop better professionally in the future."
