ARCHITECTURAL PROGRAM FROM MEXICO PARTNERING LOCALLY

Fort Worth, TX – Visiting delegation hosted by Sister Cities

Fort Worth Sister Cities International will host a delegation of architecture students from the prestigious campus of Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education in Fort Worth’s sister city of Toluca, Mexico.

Architectural engineering students and their professor will be in Fort Worth for a mentorship program April 13-20.

While in Fort Worth, the group will visit several businesses and universities to learn about the variety of potential careers in their chosen field, and to learn about the sciences behind those fields. The students will also learn about various structures throughout Fort Worth, known for their unique architecture.

Students will visit: Bennett Benner Partners, Huitt-Zollars, Tarrant County College, Fort Worth Central Library, Tarrant County Courthouse, Trinity River Vision Authority, Freese and Nichols, Texas and Pacific Station, and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

“Educational and professional exchanges are integral to the strength of Fort Worth’s global partnerships. These kinds of exchanges enhance local companies’ reach into global markets while at the same time creating stronger ties with our neighbors to the South,” said Toluca Chair Florence Bruner.

In their free time, the group will visit sites such as Sundance Square, the Kimbell Art Museum, Fort Worth Museum of Science and History and AT&T Stadium.

To show the group our Texas hospitality, they will be home hosted by community leaders.

If you are interested in home hosting in the future, please contact Beth Weibel with Fort Worth Sister Cities International at beth@fwsistercities.org.
