The Marin Center is an 80-acre area adjacent to the Marin County Civic Center which was designed in the 1950s by Frank Lloyd Wright. Although the entire site was originally planned by Wright, many of his ideas and plans were not fully realized. The purpose of the planning process was to design and renovate the existing underdeveloped site to reflect the current vision of the County and the Marin Center Renaissance Council.
As Lead Sub-Consultant to Prime Architect Mark Cavagnero Associates, RHAA was responsible for guiding the site-related elements of the master planning process. We developed concepts for the Master Plan including a new landscape architectural framework, sustainable landscape design principles, and the identification and evaluation of development sites. Potential program features include an outdoor theater/performance area, infrastructure to support a variety of events including a Farmers' Market and the Marin County Fair, an interpretive walk and an outdoor plaza with a cafe.
