“everything "green" and beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We went on Free day in the arts distric. They were well staffed. We talked to 2 young, well trained botanist. People do all kinds of plant research here. The building is so green equiped with a "living" roof. The building itself is beautifully modern. We had a tour of the herbarium with 1 million specimens stored there. We saw a beautiful, expensive art.

“Beautiful Building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2011

I went to visit BRIT for work and was lucky enough to be able to explore the entire building and site. I wish I lived in Fort Worth so that I could take advantage of their educational programs.It's the first LEED-NC Platinum building in Tarrant County, so if you are an architecture or environmental enthusiatic, it's also worth a visit. If you go, don't miss the feature wall in the lobby--it's made from sinker cypress reclaimed from a river bottom where loggers lost it 100 years ago.
