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.

“Abby has been instrumental to Strada’s growth and success since 2002, and we are thrilled to advance her to this important position,” said Al Cuteri, firm principal and human resources leader.

Abby joined Strada nearly 16 years ago and after five years moved to another firm. She returned to Strada in 2012 and quickly proved herself as a thought leader and talented architect and became an Associate of the firm three years later. Her sweet spot is planning and design for institutional clients. Abby has a special gift for comprehending an institution’s goals and realizing them through architecture.

As a Senior Associate, she will continue to create extraordinary places for people while keeping Strada at the top of its game as a mentor to younger staff and as a thought leader engaging clients in a focused, collaborative and inspiring design process.

Abby is a graduate of Kent State University where she earned a Master of Architecture in Urban Design, a Bachelor of Architecture, and a Bachelor of Science. Abby is a registered architect and a certified planner.

Currently, Abby is leading projects for the University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon University, and West Virginia University, while contributing her expertise to other exciting projects throughout the office.

Strada is a cross-disciplinary design firm where architects, interior designers, landscape architects, graphic designers, and urban designers collaborate closely both internally and externally with clients to create extraordinary places for people.
