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.
I am thankful to MCH for the international exposure, professors and leaders that they bring into the course which fulfilled my expectations.
MCH is a master oriented to the innovation, systematization and optimization of spaces in collective housing building.
"The universal importance of housing to individuals and its impact on human security and development were the driving factors behind my interest in enrolling in the MCH program. My aim was to deepen my knowledge in the field of collective housing. I wanted to acquire the adequate tools allowing me to make a difference in my society where change is possible."
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.
The important thing about the MCH is not only what happens during its time, but what comes next over the years.
The value of Collective Housing lies on its capacity to conform the city, it can be donor of its identity.
MCH has been a continuous stimulus. The whole course is carefully driven with a high standard of teaching. It is an intensive teamwork training, pointing to clarity and strength of ideas. With the hands on a deep learning, these months have drawn an accurate framework of housing practice.
I got deep into diverse subjects regarding collective housing, energy and cities and I became a great team player, working in fast-paced and deadline-driven environments, but mostly getting to know myself, my weaknesses and strengths on a deeper level.
Strategic thought, clarity and strength of ideas, teamwork and amazing personal relationships are just some of the things than come to my mind when I think about MCH.
The master is indeed a turning point in my professional life as an architect dealing with the issue of city planning and housing.
Given the experimental and reflective approach of the MCH, my participation was a qualitative step.
