The Most Cuban Building in Miami

From Havana to Miami: The Architectural and Cultural Significance of Miami Marine Stadium
VIA ZOOM – in Spanish
The Miami Marine Stadium, a Modernist icon, designed by architect Hilario Candela, FAIA, is known throughout the world as an architectural marvel because of its cantilevered, fold-plate roof and construction of lightweight, poured-in-place concrete. What is not as well known is that the stadium is the most Cuban building in Miami. Join MCAD, Save the Marine Stadium, the World Heritage Fund, Dade Heritage Trust, and others for a panel discussion that will include experts from the world of Architecture, Historic Preservation, and Cuban History. The presentation, which will be in Spanish, will explore the Cuban roots of the Marine Stadium, considered one of the world’s great buildings, as emblematic of Miami as the Sydney Opera House is emblematic of Sydney, Australia. Speakers include Frank Sanchis and Javier Ors Ausín of World Monuments Fund (WMF) and Rosa Lowinger, President of RLA Conservation and author of “Tropicana Nights.” Hilario Candela, architect of the Marine Stadium, will be a special guest. The event will be moderated by County Commission District 7 Commissioner Raquel Regalado.
