Mid-Century Landmarks: Monona Terrace

During my trip to the midwest we stopped my alma mater in Madison, WI and walked around campus and downtown. Madison is home to a few Frank Lloyd Wright buildings. I actually lived right behind the Robert M. Lamp house for a year. But the most famous Wright building in Madison is the Monona Terrace. It's a wonderful building to spend some time in/on.
All photos and this blurb from from The Monona Terrace website.
Frank Lloyd Wright originally proposed a design for the Monona Terrace Community Convention Center in 1938. His architectural vision for the City of Madison – a curvilinear gathering place that would link the shore of Lake Monona to the State Capitol – has now been realized. With interiors redesigned by Taliesin architect Tony Puttnam, Monona Terrace spans ninety feet out over shimmering waters, incorporating thoroughly modern technology and amenities with the architect´s signature organic design.


  1. Absolutely gorgeous! I'm a big Frank Lloyd Wright fan.

  2. I think it's hard to find people who aren't, and with good reason.
