The “inverted pyramid” architectural design of MGIC’s 4-story headquarters has made it one of Milwaukee’s most unique buildings since its completion in 1973. The building is one of two Travertine marble and bronze glass structures on the 2.5 acre MGIC Plaza. Architect-engineers for the development were Fitzhug Scott-Architects, Inc. of Milwaukee and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill of Chicago, who also designed such famous works as the Hancock Building and Willis Tower (originally known as the Sears Tower) in Chicago.

A brief guided tour will allow guests to learn about the Warren Platner designed interior features, and also showcases museum quality works by artists Alicia Penabla and Shelia Hicks.
