The University of Texas at El Paso first adopted its unique Bhutanese architecture in campus buildings completed in 1917. It wasn't until a half-century later that the university's bond with the remote Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan began to evolve into the strong and mutually beneficial partnership that today benefits students and the El Paso community.
Henry C. Trost, the famed architect of hundreds of buildings in El Paso and throughout the Southwest, will be the subject of the "Trost Lecture Series" at 6 p.m. May 8 in the UTEP Library, Blumberg Auditorium, room 111.
The University of Texas at El Paso is hosting different tours each month in 2014 as part of the university's Centennial Celebration.
Mountains, desert, and Bhutanese-inspired architecture make UTEP’s campus one of the most strikingly beautiful in the world.
