Venezuela Comes to Shipley

Riverside Design Studio Architects had the pleasure of entertaining a guest architect from Venzuela today!

Carmen Arelys Mendez Velandia works in San Cristobal and has been taking part in Rotary International’s Group Study Exchange (GSE) program. Arelys was shown some of our current and past projects in the morning followed by a mini-tour of Bradford that included some of Riverside’s built projects as well as historical city landmarks. Apparently the cooler climate here was a refreshing change compared to South America!

Thanks to Keighley Rotary Club and Schofield Sweeney for the opportunity to make a new friend and learn many things about architecture and construction in Venezuela. We plan on keeping in touch so it might not be long before we all meet again – maybe next time in Caracas!
