About the Monona Terrace
Monona Terrace is a convention center like no other, rising from the blue expanse of Lake Monona and just two blocks from the State Capitol and streets full of shops and restaurants.
Frank Lloyd Wright originally proposed a design for Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center in 1938. His architectural vision for the City of Madison—a curvilinear gathering place linking the shore of Lake Monona to the State Capitol—finally realized in 1997. A vision 59 years in the making.
