Exploring the Future

You’ve likely seen a bumper sticker or a sign that reads “I’d rather be…” How would you fill in the blank?

Given the opportunity, I would rather be exploring the mind of Frank Lloyd Wright at the Marin County Civic Center. Designed in 1957, the first phase of the complex—the Administration Building—was completed in 1962 and the second phase—the Hall of Justice—was completed in 1969.

FLW was ahead of his time and ours.

    Lovely sense of space. The simplicity of lines. The roundness, so FLW. The complementary colors are striking and amplify the effect of the space.

    Reminds me of a snail’s caracole shell. Beautiful play of golds, browns, and blues.

      Good catch, Ze. I was going for that Golden Ratio effect.
