Memorial Coliseum

Corpus Christi, Nueces County

Designed by noted architect Richard S. Colley in 1952, the Memorial Coliseum was completed in 1954 as part of a civic center complex including the City Hall (demolished) and Exposition Hall (demolished).


In 1952, the Design Award Jury of Progressive Architecture magazine noted the extraordinary pre-construction design. The coliseum is threatened by demolition by the City of Corpus Christi.
