The Marin County Civic Center was one of three Frank Lloyd Wright designs I was able to visit while in California. It was just a magnificent structure and I was amazed walking the halls. From the Historical Marker:
The project fully embodied Wright’s ideal of organic architecture—A synthesis of buildings and landscape. In Wright’ words, the structures were planned to “melt into the sunburnt hills.”
The Marin County Civic Center was the last commission by Frank Lloyd Wright. It is located in San Rafael, California just north of San Francisco. The groundbreaking took place after Wright’s death and the construction was supervised by Wright’s protégé, Aaron Green, and was completed in 1962.
Next door was the Marin Veterans Memorial Auditorium designed by Wright’s design team after his death.
