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.

Sustainability is fundamentally about having the humility to use only what we need, live within our means, and let the specific climate and ecosystem of our region inform our daily lives. It lies in the humble acknowledgement of mistakes, and the sacrifice to change our way of life.

Strada welcomes Larry Fabbroni, AIA, LEED AP as a new Associate

02.2016Firm News, Places
By Strada

Strada is delighted to welcome Larry Fabbroni, AIA, LEED AP, to the firm as a new Associate. For the past decade, Larry has specialized in urban design, planning and architectural projects that embrace place making, benefit public and private interests, and increase project values as well as community capital.

Larry was an Associate with the internationally-renowned firm of Ehrenkrantz Eckstut and Kuhn Architects (EE&K) in New York City, where he worked on complex large-scale urban design and planning projects. His notable experience includes a master plan for Buffalo’s Inner Harbor and Canal Side Waterfront District (currently under construction); a Development Plan for Yonkers, NY, downtown and waterfront; and a statewide Transit-Oriented Design Program for New Jersey Transit, the 4th largest transit system in the country.

More recently, Larry had his own practice in Ithaca, NY, leading the planning and design of some of the largest multi-family and mixed-use projects in the area. With the first of these, a 174-unit apartment project called the Village Solars currently under construction, his work continues to reshape the Ithaca region with development that is focused on place-making, and increased density through smart growth.

Larry firmly believes that the way great cities are made has a lot to do with making great public spaces. Campo de’ Fiori in Rome, Las Ramblas in Barcelona, the High Line in New York City, and Mexican War Streets in Pittsburgh are among his favorite places.

During the next chapter in his career, Larry is looking forward to building on Strada’s contribution to Pittsburgh’s revitalization and extending this expertise to other cities. He is excited to explore the question of what a 21st century city looks like and what opportunities there are to develop new approaches for the era we are living in through new ideas, research and proprietary thinking.

Larry enjoys fostering this dialogue as an active participant in professional and community service organizations and as a frequent presenter at conferences, civic meetings and professional organizations. He is looking forward to re-engaging with the design community in Pittsburgh and helping to shape the future of the city and beyond.

By Street Talk Editor

"I can imagine Western State Penitentiary becoming a mixed-use development (along an extended light rail that goes to the airport!) that could include housing, hospitality, cultural uses, and community functions." - Larry Fabbroni
