Traction champions participatory design, action and research to improve human, ecological and economic health in underserved communities.


We are architects, landscape architects, engineers and researchers who believe in the transformative potential of transdisciplinary collaboration.


We harness the power of participatory processes to design, implement and assess the impacts of incremental, small-scale projects. 


Our landscapes, buildings, products, research initiatives and educational programs leverage local knowledge and create tangible, grounded change.
