Sited northwest of the historic 112-year old State Capitol Building,
the Minnesota Senate Building was designed to meet the need for an expansion of the Capitol Campus and, as a 100-year building, to serve the citizens for generations. Its design purposefully facilitates greater interaction and communication with the citizens it represents.
Radially arcing around the historic State Capitol Building, the Minnesota Senate Building’s massing gently curves to maximize views back to the Capitol. At four-stories with two levels of below-grade parking across the sloped site, the building is considered an extension of the Capitol with offices and support space for senators and their staff.
