El Camino FLW?

As different as they may seem, I saw a lot of similarity between the exterior design of the traditional California missions, such as the one at Santa Barbara, and the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Marin County Civic Center. Do you see what I mean? The long row of arches, the colors, the highest point(s) and dome(s) off to one side ... Also, the sense that it is a multipurpose center of the community. Once spiritual, later secular.
