Gattaca | 1997

Gattaca location: Marin County Civic Center, San Rafael, California
Gattaca location: headquarters of the ‘Gattaca Corporation’: Marin County Civic Center, San Rafael, California

The headquarters of the sinister ‘Gattaca Corporation’ of this dystopian sci-fi is Frank Lloyd Wright’s Marin County Civic Center, Civic Center Drive, San Rafael, over the Golden Gate Bridge about 15 miles north of San Francisco.

The low, blue-domed, futuristic centre, Lloyd Wright’s last building, wasn’t dedicated until after the architect’s death in 1959, and is open for tours. You can see it also in THX-1138, the first movie of George Lucas.
