Miami Marine Stadium—Widely Celebrated Modernist Icon—Takes Important Step Toward Potential Restoration

Miami Marine Stadium, an icon of modern architecture currently threatened with demolition, has taken an important step toward potential restoration. World Monuments Fund and the National Trust for Historic Preservation have joined with local supporters in Miami—The Villagers, the Friends of Miami Marine Stadium, the John and Selene Devaney Foundation, and Miami-Dade County Commissioner Carlos Gimenez, whose district includes the stadium—and have raised the $50,000 necessary to commission an engineering study that will help determine the cost of its restoration. The partners expect the results of the study, due later this fall, to help guide decision making about the future of the facility, designed by Cuban-born architect Hilario Candela and built in 1963.
