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.
Working in international teams in workshops led by internationally acclaimed architects broadened my views on city planning & housing and enriched me professionally.
What I would highlight the most about this Master is the quality of the professors and MCH leaders since they are the best in their fields of expertise and have had a successful trajectory in architecture.
The richness of the program relies on the intensive curriculum counting site visits, lectures, studio-work, one-week workshops and study trips. All of them integrated through practice-orientated dynamic and supported by brilliant Architects, educators, and colleagues.
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 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.
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 MCH program has offered me a complete overview of housing design methods complementing it also with useful specialties related to the housing topic, skills, and tools that have allowed me to increase the quality of my design.
The important thing about the MCH is not only what happens during its time, but what comes next over the years.
Through hard working sessions with colleagues in multiple workshops and seminar classes, we developed broad and in-depth knowledge.
The Master of Collective Housing is a truly intense course, and the combination of different specialties and workshops lead by recognizable architects and professionals makes the experience unlike anything else.
