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.

Presenting a national treasure to millions of visitors

About the project

Over one million people visit the Liberty Bell in Independence National Historical Park each year. The primary challenge of designing the new 6,000-SF exhibit was to create an “engaging, informative, meaningful, affecting, and memorable encounter with a great international icon.” The exhibits tell the story of the Bell’s physical and symbolic journey—from utilitarian State House Bell, to traveling American symbol, to national and international symbol of the struggle for expanding liberties.

Befitting of a national treasure, the exhibit features enduring materials such as glass, brick, stainless steel, and porcelain enamel, which are seamlessly integrated into the structure of the award-winning new Center, designed by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson. Once a utilitarian object, the national treasure has become a symbol of America and its liberties, and more recently, an international icon of individual freedom.
