The Marin County Civic Center in San Rafael, California, Frank Lloyd Wright's last commission, served as the headquarters of the Gattaca Corporation in the 1997 dystopian sci-fi movie Gattaca. It was also used as a filming location for George Lucas's first movie THX 1138.

In 2007, the first annual Gattaca photo shoot was held there where you were encouraged to show up dressed as I suppose either Uma Thurman, Ethan Hawke or Jude Law. I have no idea if that became a recurring event.
