Yes, Zope 3 has a MVC-like architecture. We call it the Component
Architecture. It lets you separate responsibilities into different
components (objects), e.g. content objects (they can be persistent, for
example, or come from an RDBMS), views (e.g. browser views that produce
HTML), adapters (enhance components with functionality), and utilities.

For a structured introduction, see or

It is also possible to use Zope 3 style components in Zope 2 already, by
using the Five product: However, if you
don't have any Zope 2 legacy, I can only recommend you start with Zope 3
from the beginning.
