A few years later, in 1936, the same architect designed the Will Rogers Memorial Center which featured a coliseum, an auditorium, and an ornamental tower. The coliseum was the first arched steel truss domed building built in the U.S. This building is the forerunner to our domed arenas and stadiums.
