  • Accessible Parking Details: d Convention Center is located in the heart of Madison’s vibrant downtown on the shore of Lake Monona. The spectacular multilevel structure features public promenades and meeting rooms with striking lake views. Frank Lloyd Wright originally proposed a design for the Monona Terrace Community and 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 interior reconfigured by Taliesin Architects, Wright’s successor firm, Monona Terrace spans ninety feet out over shimmering waters, incorporating thoroughly modern technology and amenities with the architect’s signature organic design. PARKING Monona Terrace parking is accessible from Levels Three, Four, and Five.
