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.

Immersing visitors in a rich historical narrative

About the project

A fruitful collaboration between the City of Joliet and Joliet Historical Society led to the creation a new regional museum. The Joliet Area Historical Museum occupies a former Methodist Church, regarded by the City as an important historic building in need of preservation. The exterior was completely refurbished and the church’s sanctuary was adaptively re-used as the museum’s Core Exhibit Gallery. The project also entailed a new one-story addition for the Historic Route 66 Welcome Center.

Large-scale sensory exhibits, such as the two-story Canal Cut and recreated downtown streetscape, fully immerse the visitor in Joliet’s heritage. Visitors may climb aboard a recreated trolley, take a seat inside, and experience a simulated ride down Main Street Joliet. They also can watch excerpts of silent films that once headlined at the Rialto Theater, or select a radio station to hear the latest war news, advertisements, and music broadcast during World War II. “Talk of the Town” offers a link to current issues, residents, and happenings.

The impact of the Joliet Area Historical Museum has reached far beyond the museum’s historic walls, contributing heavily to the revitalization of the City of Joliet.
