Marin Civic Center, California


Marin County Civic Center, the only public building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, is located in San Rafael, California. The building, completed in 1959 after Wright's death, is a national and state designated historic landmark. The nearby fairgrounds house the Marin County Fair each July.

Portions of the science fiction films THX 1138 (1969) and Gattaca (1997) were shot on location in the Marin Center. In addition, the buildings (especially those in the fairgrounds) served as a direct inspiration to those of the planet Naboo in the Star Wars films.
