A futuristic, robin egg blue spaceship emerges majestically from the expansive landscape, then transforms into a massive structure that is dwarfed only by the two valleys it spans. This unusual and eyecatching building, the Marin County Civic Center, was nominated in early 2015 for the UNESCO World Heritage List and is best known as Frank Lloyd Wright’s final and largest public project. But to science-fiction fans the striking structure carries a different meaning, as it was an inspiration to both George Lucas in Star Wars, as well as science fiction director Andrew Niccol.
