The Civic Center project was Wright’s largest public project, and encompassed an entire campus of civic structures. The post office was the only federal government project of Wright’s career.

Wright’s design borrowed ideas and forms from Wright’s Broadacre City concept, first published in The principal structure consists of a four-story, foot m long Administration Building and a three-story, foot m long Hall of Justice at a lower elevation, joined at a degree angle with an foot 24 m diameter rotunda. The Hall of Justice spans a small valley, arching twice over an access road and a parking area, while the Administration Building spans a smaller ravine.

Both structures are entered through archways on their lower levels. The long principal facades are marked by shallow non-structural arches of decreasing span with each story. On the intermediate level, they appear to stand on short slender gold-anodized columns, and on the top level, they become round openings with gold railings directly under the deep roof overhang.

The railings themselves have a circular pattern. The bright blue roof is itself patterned with arched cut-outs and raised circular patterns The building wings are arranged as a barrel vault shape on either side of the central galley, asymmetrically disposed. Interior guardrails at the atrium are solid stucco with no metal elements. Entrances are controlled by vertical grills of gold- anodized metal with rounded tops and bottoms, rather than doors.

The eaves are embellished with an arched fascia with small gold balls inset in each arch, a pattern repeated in the atria. The rotunda on the central hill houses the county library and a central cafeteria. Its foot 52 m gold spire was meant to house a radio transmitter, as well as the boiler plant’s chimney.

The interiors are arranged around open atria or “malls” as Wright called Glacier National Park To Great Falls Mt, which allow natural light into the space.

Originally open to the sky, Glacier National Park To Great Falls Mt malls were later covered with skylights designed by William Wesley Peters.

After Wright’s death, Olgivanna Lloyd Wright chose a bright blue color that would weather well, gaining a softer color with age. The color choice, together with the pink stucco walls, was initially controversial, causing Marin County National Park building to become known as “Big Pink”.

The only large gold element is the spire at the rotunda. Its facade repeats the arch motif, with circular embellishments on its canopy. The interior features an elliptical lobby. The nearby Veterans’ Memorial Auditorium was designed by the Taliesin Associated Architects and was completed in in a manner compatible with the main complex.

As the jail outgrew its space a number of proposals were advanced for a new facility adjoining the Civic Center. The jail connects to the Hall of Justice by an underground link.
