Thanks to MCH, I could enhance my background with a variety of fields that housing envolves such as technology, sustainability, sociology, management, low-cost housing, urban design, and many other fields, that were covered during the course.
The Specialities offer the opportunity to research and develop the projects during several weeks while meeting some of the most relevant lecturers on those matters. The Workshops teach you how to make important decisions efficiently and develop a project in 5 days along with some of the most recognised architects in the world.
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.
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.
After completing more than the half of the program, I have to say that my expectations are being met. The format is mainly practical, and very very intense. The rhythm varies along the weeks and subjects, which allows each one to be organised according to their needs.
MCH has been an Intensive course. Moving at breakneck speeds with hands on learning, and support through several workshops and interactive sessions, really makes you put your all into it.
The MCH is not just a “master degree” but a constant challenge through every specialty and workshop.
The working atmosphere has been incredible in many ways, such as the commitment and quality of the professors, who are devoted and passionate about teaching, and the personal contact with all the people in charged.
The value of Collective Housing lies on its capacity to conform the city, it can be donor of its identity.
If you are interested in architecture and especially in the part related to collective housing and city, this master will not disappoint you. It is a breath of fresh air and at the same time a hard challenge in the path of learning this wonderful art.
The teachers, education, workshops and attention we received during the Master's program was above and beyond anything I could have expected.
I believe MCH course is a challenging course for the participants as it helps in the development of a holistic awareness of the topics concerning housing. I feel that it has fulfilled me as it has trained me to self-evaluate my design and trained with critical analysis of my decisions in bringing out the best deliverable.
An incredibly intense time that pushed my limits forward.
