The Johnson Foundation at Wingspread is conveniently located in Racine, Wisconsin, midway between Milwaukee and Chicago. The grounds, which feature forests, nature trails and a pond, are nestled amid 36 acres near the western shore of Lake Michigan.

There are three main buildings on the grounds:

  • Wingspread, a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed building, originally the home of Herbert Fisk Johnson and his family, now used as meeting, dining and gathering space during conferences.
  • The House which also once served as the home of Herbert Fisk, is where the majority of conferences convene at The Johnson Foundation at Wingspread.
  • The Guest House provides overnight accommodations for conference participants as well as gathering space that allows for continued discussion after formal sessions conclude.
