In the early 1960s, architect Hilario Candela designed the first venue ever built for powerboat racing: Miami Marine Stadium. An icon of mid-20th century Modernism, the stadium hosted not only powerboat races, but concerts, boxing matches, political rallies, and church services. A defining meeting place for the community, the stadium was shuttered after Hurricane Andrew struck South Florida in 1992. Nevertheless, to its creator, the Marine Stadium remains an enduring source of pride.

Part of the 2016 HistoryMiami Museum exhibition Beyond the Game: Sports and the Evolution of South Florida.
