In the world of Googie Architecture, see the commercial landscape as it once was... a field of dreams and optimism... back when the consensus was that "anything and everything was possible." The Skydome in Flagstaff, AZ is a great example of the openness of googie with its parabolic shapes and dome like structure. The Skydome opened its doors in 1977.
