For over a decade, Dr. George W. Davis had a vision of creating an Aging Campus for seniors in San Francisco’s Bayview Hunters Point District. MWA assisted Dr. Davis with the initial concept for his vision. As the project became a reality, Dr. Davis asked that MWA design a Senior Center to replace one that the community had outgrown.
We sought to design a vibrant space that is a hub of activity for this newly created community. We wanted to further Bayview Senior Services goal of retaining, “… the values of a community village that elders from historically Southern Black communities have brought to the Bayview, creating their own small town with people who have known each other for decades.”
