The Brooklyn Dodgers proposed domed stadium, designed by Buckminster Fuller, was to replace Ebbets Field for the Brooklyn Dodgers to allow them to stay in New York City. The Dodgers instead moved to Chavez Ravine in Los Angeles, California. First announced in the early 1950s, the envisioned structure would have seated 52,000 people and been the first domed stadium in the world, opening roughly a decade before Houston’s Astrodome. The stadium would have been located at the southeast corner of Flatbush Avenue and Atlantic Avenue, on the site of the Barclays Center. It would have cost $6 million to build and been privately financed. It was never built.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUCKY!
