Frank Lloyd Wright emphasized his theory of organic architecture in his design of the Marin Civic Center. The related groupings of long, horizontal buildings which constitute the Civic Center and gracefully link several rolling hills, stand as testament to Wright's philosophy. A principal architectural feature of the Administration Building is the 80-foot diameter dome, home to the Marin County Free Library, the Anne T. Kent California Room and the Board of Supervisors. The 172-foot slender gold spire houses a 45-foot radio and T.V. antenna. The Marin County Civic Center is a national and state designated historic landmark.
