Agency Takes on the Lake Monona Waterfront Design Competition in Madison

Agency is thrilled – after a multi-step competitive process – to be short-listed and now competing in the Lake Monona Waterfront Design Competition in Madison, Wisconsin. Our stellar partners – all with deep ties to Madison – include MSR Design, raSmith and Kimley Horn Engineering.

According to the competition brief:

“The Design Challenge is a competition to create a visionary, inclusive, and environmentally focused master plan for 1.7 miles of shoreline and 17 acres of Madison’s foremost public lakefront.

The primary goals of the Design Challenge are to create a welcoming destination for all Madison residents and visitors, connect Downtown Madison to Lake Monona, enhance community connections, increase physical and visual access to the lake, improve Lake Monona’s water quality and aquatic habitat, celebrate Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural legacy in Madison, and preserve Lake Monona’s cultural history from the Ho-Chunk nation to the present day.”

The 14-week competition starts in September with the Ad-hoc Committee recommending a preferred plan to the Common Council and Board of Park Commission in 2023.
