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.

About the project

Within the walls of the oldest building at West Virginia University, Strada has designed a cutting-edge media space that lets students work with information and images from around the world. A new feature of the Reed College of Media, the 2000-SF Alexis and Jim Pugh Media Lab is an incubator for emerging media products and applications. Students and faculty can project from laptops onto multiple large screens, allowing for collaborative work such as building presentations and editing videos. An array of monitors with lounge seating and writable surfaces allows for group viewing and discussion of multiple media channels. The atmosphere draws on cafes and tech offices, blending the warmth of brick and wood with elements of glass and metal. Both the room’s design and its technological capabilities are bringing fresh inspiration to WVU’s students in media and communications.

“The architects at Strada are talented, creative and fun to work with. They did an amazing job transforming an "analog" computer lab into a future-of-media teaching and learning space  — while maintaining the room's historic character.  It is both a functional space and a work of art.”

– Maryanne Reed, Dean of the College of Media
