Here’s Frank Lloyd Wright like you’ve never experienced before: A new interactive app is showcasing the 1957-built Marin County Civic Center, the legendary architect’s last major commission and only government building, with videos, photographs, and more.

Spearheaded by the Marin County Department of Cultural Services, the new iOS and Android app provides in-depth information about Wright’s involvement and the history of the building itself. You can look through indoor and outdoor drone footage, blueprints, sketches, and historic and recent photographs.

The app also offers a 360-degree virtual tour of the Civic Center offices and an inside look at rarely accessible rooms, such as the Marin County Board of Supervisors Chambers and their private balcony, a Hall of Justice courtroom, and the iconic Marin County Library.

The building itself was full of classic Wright ideals, from the sweeping horizontality to the harmonious relationship with its natural surroundings. It’s also listed as a National Historic Landmark and California Historical Landmark, and has been nominated to the UNESCO World Heritage List.
