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.

The Craft of Story Building


A story’s form should be organic— the moves it makes, the shape it takes. Initial visions of setting, theme, voice, and plot emerge as the writer intuits what the story needs without the anchor of minutia holding things back. Art is made.

Capturing the history and traditions of a resort community

About the project

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Eagles Mere is nestled in the Endless Mountains of Northern Pennsylvania. Beginning in the 1880s through the present, Eagles Mere has thrived as a resort community for the “well to do.” The exhibits for the new Eagles Mere Museum explore “The Lake and It’s Legacy.”

Visitors step back in time where they encounter the early settlers, the rise of the resort era, and the cultural and recreational attractions of the town over many decades. A recreation of the town’s boardwalk and a display of photos and artifacts such as athletic trophies; playbills and posters touting evening entertainment; a sled from the famed Ice Toboggan Slide; and a history of the six major Victorian hotels and the summer “cottages,” all give a sense of what it was like to summer here. The exhibits conclude by endeavoring the visitor to partake in the preservation of Eagles Mere’s enduring legacy.
