Palacio de los Deportes / Felix Candela

Palacio de los Deportes (1968) by Félix Candela, Antonio Peyrí Maciá, and Enrique Castañeda Tamborell

It's visible from the air when flying into Mexico City. I stopped by on my ride back to the airport.

The construction of the Palacio de los Deportes began in 1966 and was completed in 1968.

Just in time for the 1968 Olympics. I wish they kept the Lance Wyman sign up. 

The geodesic roof is covered in copper.
