Abstract

This paper is part of the results of a research project at UPM. In it we analize the project of the sport facilities at Brown University, which was done by Félix Candela after forming a partnership with Cutting-Praeger, during the years 1965-1972. The original plans made by Félix Candela are included in the research paper. They are stored at Avery Architectural and Fine Arts Library. We have also added computer generated images and drawings, which allowed us to analyze the geometry of the spherical dome. It is subdivided into hyperbolic paraboloid vaults in order to generate the enclusure. The reconstruction of the project allow us to visualize a project which was never built.
