Strada is taking active measures to ensure the health of our Team Members and also to assist in fighting the spread of COVID-19. We closed our physical offices in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia on March 17, 2020. We continue to operate remotely while considering CDC guidelines and recommendations to protect our team and clients for a safe reopening. We anticipate returning to our offices this summer, but will update our plans as new information becomes available.

Meetings will continue to be held virtually, via conference call or may be postponed. All of our Team Members will be working remotely under our work-from-home policy. Due to school and business closings, our staff may be active at various times throughout the day and evening. Please bear with us as we make every effort to stay on schedule and in contact with our clients and business colleagues.

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.

Igniting creative collisions and the local economy

About the project

What sort of space fosters “creative collisions?” That is exactly the question we contemplated in designing the ExCITe Center at Drexel University. As new technologies give rise to new forms of creative expression, artistic visions are driving the development of new technologies. In response, the ExCITe Center is spearheading research and re-inventing education that blurs the lines between science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics and creative expression.

Kollect is a characteristic project of the Center. It provides physical therapy to young patients with cerebral palsy using Microsoft Kinect games to build muscle endurance and improve overall health. It also reflects the Center’s embrace of regional partnerships, which it has established with IBM, Temple University, the Navy Yard, and the Opera Company of Philadelphia.

At once a research center, educational program and resource hub for the local digital creative economy, ExCITe houses sound stations, computer stations, meeting spaces, and the Shima Seiki Haute Technology Lab, which features Sheima Seiki whole garment knitting machines. Located on the first floor of 3401 Market Street, the ExCITe Center bears little resemblance to the dark, cubicled offices that it replaced. Instead the 13,600-SF open loft-like space projects an industrial vibe that recalls the building’s original use as a paper warehouse. Infilled bays have been replaced by soaring windows that allow abundant light and inspiring views of the street beyond.
