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 new home for cultivating experimentation

The Media Innovation Center is fast becoming a differentiator for WVU in its ability to empower collaboration, conversation, and experimentation between students, faculty, and members of the larger community. This space multi-tasks to simultaneously support learning, making, collaborating, and broadcasting. A high degree of flexibility allows the physical space to change to meet the needs of its users, foster their ideas, and support the technologies and products they develop.

The use of glass, metal, brick, wood, exposed mechanical systems, and state-of-the-art AV technology creates a high-tech industrial vibe that is inviting and comfortable for a wide range of users, from the most tech-savvy software engineers to the less digitally-inclined rural focus group. The Center enables this diverse collection of people to brainstorm ways of transforming the future of media, furthering its reach into uncharted territory.

I can’t begin to adequately express how transformative the physical space is to the occupants’ behavior. It’s almost magical. The space is alive. Seeing people in it and using it and making it their own — from the lure of the blue sky room to the delight of the huddles. Students and faculty are staying 30 minutes to an hour beyond class time in the rooms to continue working.
