With sumptuous illustrations and superb documentation, the extraordinary story of the epic fifty-nine-year civic battle to build one of Frank Lloyd Wright's most important designs is finally told in Frank Lloyd Wright's Monona Terrace: The Enduring Power of a Civic Vision, by David Mollenhoff and Mary Jane Hamilton.

Opened in the summer of 1997 as a convention and community center, Monona Terrace was first conceived by Wright in 1938 and resulted in ten designs, thousands of drawings, five local referenda, ten lawsuits, and several acts of the state legislature. Mollenhoff and Hamilton provide the definitive history of the building's design, the tempestuous relationship of Wright to his hometown of Madison, and the community leaders and activists who rallied to oppose or support the project. Drawing from the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives, thousands of newspaper accounts, extensive government records, and dozens of interviews, the book also features more than  200 illustrations in color and black and white, including many published here for the first time.

In August 2000 The American Association for State and Local History (AASLH) proudly announced that David Mollenhoff and Mary Jane Hamilton are recipients of an AASLH Certificate of Commendation for Frank Lloyd Wright's Monona Terrace: The Enduring Power of a Civic Vision. This is a most prestigious recognition for achievement in the preservation and interpretation of local, state and regional history.

About the Author:

David V. Mollenhoff is the author of the award-winning book, Madison: A History of the Formative Years. Mary Jane Hamilton is a well-known Wright scholar, author, and curator.

From Library Journal:

"It will come about someday," was Frank Lloyd Wright's prediction in 1958 about the fate of a civic center he initially designed in 1938 for the shore of Lake Monona in Madison, WI. On July 18, 1997, the convention center, Monona Terrace, opened its doors. This is an exhaustive, well-illustrated recounting of the project and a critique of the completed facility. The book's comprehensiveness makes it a mandatory addition to specialized architectural collections and collections of Madison local history while limiting its desirability elsewhere.AJay Schafer, Bay Path Coll.
