The Poliedro de Caracas ("Caracas Polyhedron Arena") is an indoor sports arena, located on the grounds adjacent to Hipodromo La Rinconada, in Caracas, Venezuela. It was designed by architect Thomas C. Howard of Synergetics, Inc, in Raleigh, NC in 1971. However, the geodesic dome was not concluded, until 1974, when US firm Charter Industries with Synergetics, Inc designed and manufactured the geodesic dome in Raleigh, NC.
It is housed beneath a geodesic dome with a seating capacity of 20,000 and is used for concerts, sporting events such as basketball, volleyball, boxing, ice skating shows, circuses, and trade expositions like autoshows, expomuebles (furniture). Lately, it has also been used for government-sponsored political events.
It was finished in 1974 and officially inaugurated with the fight between George Foreman and Ken Norton on March 26, 1974. It also served as the stage for many local acts like Melissa, Yordano and Ilan Chester, among others and international acts that visited Venezuela.
