It is now ten years since I took part in the first edition (2006) of the recommendable Master of Advanced Studies in Collective Housing MCH at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, where I had the double opportunity to meet and work closely with many of the architects -students and professors- with whom I kept on working in the subsequent years, as well as to flourish the ideas that later became my doctoral thesis on collective housing. MCH is now associated with ETH Zurich, offering a joint program that brings together some of the best experts in the topic.
