Institute of Architectural Engineering Heritage Hosts First Conference
KINGSVILLE (Kiii News) -
In Jim Wells County, the new "Institute of Architectural Engineering Heritage" hosted it's first conference on the campus of Texas A&M-Kingsville.
Partners of the newly approved institute from many different colleges and departments within the A&M System introduced themselves and discussed their capabilities. The institute will assess, document and provide planning resources for communities throughout Texas while recording their historic findings.
"By documenting our history and our culture, people can understand where they've come from and when they understand that they have pride in their community, and we can document buildings so that in the future, if something happens, we can reconstruct them if needed," said Jim Glusing with the Institute of Architectural Engineering Heritage.
Numerous entities including the College of Engineering at Texas A&M-Kingsville worked on this project.
