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.

Measuring and showcasing U.S. innovation and industrial competitiveness

About the project

How do you measure and set standards for things as intangible as light or the electromagnetic compatibility of electronic devices? This is the charge of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the products and services of which impact the design and safety of everything from GPS satellites, lasers, and bulletproof vests to the power grid, homes, spacecraft, and cyber-security systems.

The extraordinary contributions NIST has made over the past 110 years to the development of the U.S. as the world leader in science, technology, and engineering form the focus of new lobby exhibits in the agency’s headquarters in Maryland and laboratories in Colorado. Historic tools, test apparatus, and test samples interspersed with photos, videos, and interviews that bring to life NIST’s commitment to innovation and precision, which drives the nation’s industrial competitiveness, economic security and quality of life.
