What elements are essential to make our existing communities livable for all ages?

Research Project Name

Designing Intergenerational Communities

What We Did

After bringing together industry experts to discuss, envision, and create a framework for BoomTown, we tapped Gensler design teams from Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles to create visualizations for two communities — MacArthur Park, Los Angeles and Ivy City, Washington, D.C. Our conceptual designs are tools for changing the built environment to expand opportunities for existing community members and encourage intergenerational living and connections.
