Regarding Quisling Towers Apartments. The Madison Landmarks Commission stated that the "Quisling Towers Apartments and the Quisling Clinic near-by are Madison's best examples of the Art Moderne style. The Quisling Apartments was designed by Danish-born architect Lawrence Monberg for Dr. Abraham Quisling, just before Monberg opened his own office in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Monberg was given full control over the details and execution of his design, which was considered bold in the context of Depression-era construction. The building was one of Madison's more prestigious apartment buildings, and still serves its original residential purpose."
