Marin County Civic Center was designed in the '50's by Frank Lloyd Wright.
He called this style of architecture - "organic", and it's an absolutely amazing building! When it was first built a lot of people hated it and called it a waste of taxpayer's money as well as an eyesore, but these days most everyone has come to love it for it's futuristic design. Most local residents call it by it's unofficial name: "The Blue Roof"...
As I was leaving I stopped for one last shot of the "far out" gate (big photo above), and one of the county supervisors stopped to say hello and give me a tip about a vantage point for a sweeping view of the entire building. But of course I know about that spot, and had shot it earlier -- but I was amazed that such an important man would stop and strike up a conversation with such a knave like me. For sure -- he's going to get my vote in the next election...
