Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1957)

The Marin County Civic Center. San Rafael. 1969

The Marin County Civic Center was Frank Lloyd Wright’s last commission and largest public project, including several civic functions that would serve Marin County and San Francisco, which after the opening of the Golden Gate Bridge became closer than ever. Wright was selected for the project in 1957, winning a vote out of hope he would be able to best represent a democratic government open to the people through the Civic Center.

In April 1958 Wright’s project was approved, and the architect submitted his set of concept drawings exactly a year later. Upon his death, his protege Aaron Greene would lead the construction, bringing Frank Lloyd Wright’s designs to reality. Source
