Description
The Marin County Civic Center, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, is located in San Rafael, California. Groundbreaking for the Civic Center Administration Building took place in 1960, a year after his death, and was completed in 1962. The four-story Administration Building is 584 feet long. Basic construction is of pre-cast, pre-stressed floor systems with combined steel and concrete vertical supports. Exterior balconies and internal walkways are cantilevered over the supports. The structure houses the County's administrative, financial and physical development departments, as well as the Marin County Free Library and the Anne T. Kent California Room.
