City Bank Auditorium and Coliseum (Lubbock Municipal Auditorium-Coliseum)

-A A +A
1956, Haynes and Kirby

Although located on the campus, the facility is city-owned. Dominated by an enormous curved roof, the auditorium’s perimeter walls are a curious mix of modernistic curves and Spanish Renaissance details in deference to Tech’s campus architecture.
