In spring 2007, a team of AG Architecture employees gathered to participate in a weekend charrette called "Aging in Community -- A Senior Housing Ideas Competition." The goal of the competition was to generate ideas -- ideas that go beyond addressing the "supply and demands" of the ever-growing senior population. It aimed to generate innovative visions -- visions offering unique solutions for combining housing with support services to create a better sense of community for the city's senior population. Teams representing eight local architectural firms were directed to focus their planning on four actual sites in Milwaukee. Program guidelines were kept to a minimum in an effort to promote innovative and creative thinking, but teams were encouraged to provide solutions that represent "housing plus services." AG Architecture was assigned the Layton Boulevard Neighborhood at 27th Street and West National Avenue. Simply stated, their goal is to provide for those with lesser means the opportunity to age with grace and dignity.
