Harris County voters will decide in a week what to do with the Astrodome. A ballot measure, known on mobile billboards and Twitter feeds as Proposition 2, asks taxpayers to foot a $217 million renovation, designed by Kirksey, that would convert the Dome into convention space. The rendering above shows what that might end up looking like: The stadium’s below-grade playing field would be raised; the rainbow seats removed; exterior scrubbed; entrances enlarged with glass panels; and the concrete perimeter made into greenspace.
If the measure fails, it’s likely that the Dome will be demolished.
