The program is eminently practical and is structured in Workshops and Specialties; Energy and Sustainability, Housing Projects, Housing Theory, Construction & Technology, Residential Urban Planning, Low-Cost Housing, Business Management & International Activity, and Economy, Sociology & Politics.

In the past years, MCH has built a close relationship with great architects such as Dietmar Eberle, Felix Claus, Anne Lacaton, Riken Yamamoto, Frits van Dongen, Hrvoje Njiriç, Juan Herreros, Jacob van Rijs, Alejandro Aravena, Andrea Deplazes, Dick van Gameren, Cino Zucchi, Peter Ebner, Max Risselada or Wiel Arets, who are regular workshop and specialty leaders.

MCH is intended for qualified architects who have completed their bachelor´s degree or equal level certificate. This intensive program takes place in Madrid (Spain) from January until July and the master’s project is submitted in September. Classes are held every afternoon from 16.00h to 21.30h in the MCH Studio, which is reserved for participants to develop their work during the rest of the day.
