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.

Seamless brushstrokes that enhance the visitor experience

About the project

The Hagley Museum and Library is the site of the gunpowder works founded by E. I. du Pont in 1802. The renowned museum collects, preserves, and interprets the unfolding history of American enterprise. To celebrate its 50th Anniversary in 2007, the Museum unveiled a series of improvements to the Visitor Center that dramatically enhance the visitor experience. These include a new handicapped-accessible pedestrian bridge over the millrace that extends onto a new terrace overlooking the Brandywine River. The terrace allows the Museum to host outdoor events. Other enhancements include a new entryway to the Visitor Center as well as improved handicapped parking facilities and visitor access. New signage more clearly orients visitors.
