1970 | Creation of the Minimum Cost Housing Group.

The Minimum Cost Housing Group (MCHG) of McGill’s School of Architecture is a research unit concerned with the human settlement problems of the poor. Its research has primarily focused on poor countries, but it has also conducted research projects in wealthier countries. Research has been carried out on construction materials, small building components, low-cost sanitation and servicing systems, human settlements planning, and urban architecture.
