I am thankful to MCH for the international exposure, professors and leaders that they bring into the course which fulfilled my expectations.
Over the 7 months we have had excellent professors who helped me to develop my skills to the edge.
The MCH created many international contacts with participants and teachers, and through this, allowed me to work in an internationally acclaimed European office.
The Master of Architecture in Collective Housing is an intense and enriching experience, a turning point for any professional who wants to incorporate new ways of thinking, methodologies and knowledge, not only related to the field of collective housing, but also to architecture itself.
Learning to go beyond what seems to be common in a house, getting rid of stereotypes and being responsible with society and the environment, are reaffirmed principles in each module and put into practice in every international workshop from different perspectives.
MCH not only gave me the opportunity to increase my professional knowledge through each workshop, it also provided an international networking that allowed participants to create and work in architecture from a global perspective.
Looking back after finishing MCH, I am convinced I could not have chosen a better option, as I grew up intellectually and personally. We have really had great professionals teaching at MCH.
Furthermore, teamwork is a big part of this master. In most cases we had to learned how to take fast decisions and learn from others. Debates and discussions are part of this master and that makes it more interesting and challenging.
Architects like Anne Lacaton, Andrea Deplazes, 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.
MCH is a really intense post-graduate master in which a lot of concepts and knowledge are compressed and explained in seven months by well-known professionals and trained professors.
Professionally, the MCH has allowed me, at a very young age, to develop and build a city planning & housing project where I could apply everything learnt during my training.
The permanent intensive work turned out, on one hand, into surprising results in quality and quantity and, on the other hand, into a collaborative atmosphere that generated friendships forever.
The amount of knowledge and produced work is incredible, considering the sort time of period. The professors are well-known architects with great experience in their fields. The opportunity to work near to prestigious professionals such as Andrea Deplazes, Dietmar Eberle, Alison Brooks, Anne Lacaton is an invaluable experience.
