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.

A stunning nod to agricultural history

About the project

Cited by the Smithsonian as having one of the finest collections of farm artifacts in the nation, this museum existed for years in a large, agricultural hall-type shed with leaking roofs, inadequate heating, and no cooling, air filtration, or humidity control. The scope of work for the project began with a master plan for interpretation of the museum’s collections, and for the improvement and expansion of its physical plant. This was followed by design of a new wing for exhibition and visitor services with a dramatic “silo” structure that houses stairways and exhibits, and an entrance “arch” that makes the existing building more dynamic and visible.

In addition to planning and designing the Museum, the firm also designed an award-winning exhibit that brings to life Jehu Camper’s wooden whittlins. Camper’s whittlins capture the spirit of rural Delaware at the turn of the 20th century and provide a unique record of Delaware’s agricultural history. The Delaware Agricultural Museum and Village has the entirety of Camper’s work in its collection. The interactive exhibit allows visitors to listen to Camper tell stories of rural Americana and encounter his whittlins first hand.
