Miami Marine Stadium, Virginia Key, Florida

Built entirely of poured concrete with a dramatic folded-plate roof, this South Florida icon of modern design (shown in an undated historic picture) was heavily damaged during Hurricane Andrew in 1992 and later closed.

After years of neglect, the stadium is now a "prime target" for developers—making it one of the National Trust for Historic Preservation's 11 most endangered historic places in the United States for 2009.
