Construction of the Hall of Justice began in 1966 and was completed in 1969. As he had done with the Civic Center's Administration Building, Frank Lloyd Wright emphasized his theory of organic architecture in his design for the Hall of Justice. The related groupings of long, horizontal buildings, which constitute the Civic Center, link with several rolling hills and stand as testament to Wright's philosophy. The Hall of Justice houses the Marin County Superior Court. The Marin County Civic Center is a national and state designated historic landmark.
