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.
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.
In this special year because of coronavirus, I appreciated the effort and willingness to rearrange the schedule in a way that would benefit us for ensuring face to face classes for the workshops.
During the development of the MCH major skills were acquired, both technical and experimental, which all play a very important role since they are complements and all must be part of the development of a good architectural project
Through hard working sessions with colleagues in multiple workshops and seminar classes, we developed broad and in-depth knowledge.
MCH is a master oriented to the innovation, systematization and optimization of spaces in collective housing building.
The thinking flexibility and the mind elasticity that we acquire thanks to a constant question that we are asked is invaluable. The close and direct relationship we have with professional architects makes us aware of our capabilities and constantly motivated.
Despite the Covid crisis, MCH team have made an incredible effort to return to face-to-face lessons, making it possible to meet again and have the workshops all together. Working directly with classmates allows to learn directly from them and to complement lectures and reviews.
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.
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 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.
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.
Over the 7 months we have had excellent professors who helped me to develop my skills to the edge.
