About Strada

Strada means “street” in Italian. Streets matter to us. They’re the fundamental infrastructure of our cities and the core of our civic lives. They’re the connections between buildings, people, and public spaces. This is why we’re so inspired by them and it’s a shared commitment to these values that brought our principals together. Just as people mingle on city streets, our office is a place where we freely exchange ideas, challenging and inspiring one another to create exceptional work.

By Street Talk Editor

Strada is pleased to welcome Terrie Brightman, RLA, ASLA to our multidisciplinary team, adding exceptional talent and depth to our Landscape Architecture group.

“Terrie brings exceptional landscape design and delivery to Strada’s team of professionals,” said Alan Cuteri, Founding Principal and Higher Education Principal. “The talent and experience that she brings will be a huge asset to our clients.”

Prior to returning to her hometown of Pittsburgh and joining Strada, Terrie worked for 9 years at MNLA in New York City, at Robert A.M. Stern in NYC and Vollmer Associates LLC in Pittsburgh and New York City. Terrie’s projects have received awards and merits from the NY and NJ Chapters of the ASLA and Fast Company. She has worked in both the public and private sectors having completed several waterfront projects in Pittsburgh and New York City, private residences in California and Florida, and high-end developments abroad.

Terrie has been published in the Architect’s Newspaper and was a regular contributor to Metropolis Magazine’s POV blog. Her professional work is focused in metropolitan areas encompassing design, documentation and delivery of public parks, streetscapes, plazas and accessible green roofs. Many of these projects aim to improve public landscapes through community participation and sustainable design and construction.

Terrie is a thought leader and enjoys collaborating with her peers to evolve and refine the holistic human centered design process. She is a graduate of The Pennsylvania State University.

Strada is a cross-disciplinary design firm where architects, interior designers, landscape architects, graphic designers, and urban designers collaborate closely both internally and externally with clients to create extraordinary places for people.
