TRACE DESIGN GROUP  +1 617 797 0569

design workshops • idea generation • fundraising materials • design development • contract documentation • fabrication • installation • site supervision


Our workshop facilitation encourages open-ended thinking and creative problem solving. The deliverables include content frameworks, circulation studies, capacity diagrams, renderings; tools that can be incorporated into grant proposals and used for fundraising.


We believe in elegant design that is still approachable and fun. We use educational theory and mix it up with choreography. We listen. Then we create teams of scholars, scientists, media technicians, writers and graphic designers. TRACE applies the best delivery mechanisms to showcase the research. We research and use materials that are sustainable, ecologically sound and durable.


Trace will provide fabrication documentation for bidding purposes as well as design-build project management and installation supervision.

We have streamlined a Design/ Build process and offer this as a successful option for fast track projects.
