This week the topic is Horizontal Lines.
—Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge
At a total length of 880 feet, the Hall of Justice wing of the Marin County Civic Center is the perfect specimen for a look at horizontal lines. A few months ago I took this photo of a small section of the building just to capture the interplay of light and shadow with the delicate arches and lines created by Frank Lloyd Wright’s design.
We know that the good building is not the one that hurts the landscape, but is one that makes the landscape more beautiful than it was before that building was built. In Marin County you have one of the most beautiful landscapes I have seen, and I am proud to make the buildings of this County characteristic of the beauty of the County. —Frank Lloyd Wright
