Explore 360° of Miami Marine Stadium
This summer, in partnership with Heineken USA, the National Trust's IndieGoGo campaign to help fund the restoration of Miami Marine Stadium hit its goal of $100,000 raised. (There is still time to contribute to the campaign!)
The 6,566-seat stadium was designed by 27-year-old, Cuban-born architect Hilario Candela. When it was poured in 1963, its 326-foot, fold-plate roof was the longest span of cantilevered concrete on earth.
During its heyday, powerboat races, Easter sunrise services, and concerts under the stars all drew thousands to Miami Marine Stadium. Hundreds of boats would surround the floating stage to enjoy the festivities. The experience was authentic Miami—there was nothing else like it, anywhere.
The site's recent history has been shaped by the artists who have used its concrete curves and stadium seating as their medium for expression. There are dozens of layers of paint in places, as new artists continue to add their tags and murals to the ever-changing canvas.
It's hard to visualize the stadium without a trip to Miami, but thanks to photographer Rodrigo Moreno and the latest 360-degree cameras, you can enjoy the next best thing.
