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.

Using a collaborative, charette process, we rapidly developed a comprehensive plan to address all aspects of campus development: buildings, landscapes, transportation, utilities, infrastructure and sustainability.

The master plan is guided by the following principles:
