This Spectacular Building Is An Architecture Lover’s Dream • Marin County Civic Center

By Ashlyn Davis

Marin Court Civic Center

Frank Lloyd Wright’s ground-breaking administrative block is a hidden gem.

We can’t wait until Wes Anderson finds out about this spectacular building – so it gets the center-framed, accentuated, pop-coloring attention it deserves. The Marin Civic Center is exactly what happens when a visionary architect designs a building specifically for the surrounding lands. [PHOTO: Wikipedia]

The building connects the two valleys in San RafaelCalifornia, with an impressive blue-roofed complex. Although Wright died before seeing its completion, Wright’s protégé, Aaron Green, did a sterling job of realizing the vision in 1962. The pale-pink stucco exterior housing the distinctive, scalloped balconies is the last and largest of all Wright’s works.

There is not a single detail left to chance, every corner of the building seems as though it’s been lovingly buffed with a silk handkerchief by Lloyd Wright himself.
