We're Moving!

To 811 East Washington Avenue

Strang is moving to downtown Madison in October. We’re excited to move into space we’ve designed. Check up the write-up in our Client Update section of this issue for more about the Gebhardt Building.

WHAT'S WITH THE WHEELS?

When you visit our new office, you’ll notice a couple of strange-looking wooden shapes on our wall. These round forms, used to create a world-class sound system at the Hamel Music Center on the Universeity of Wisconsin campus, is a shout-out to our design team. The system centers on two reverberation chambers that act like an acoustic instrument, filling the hall with music exactly as it was intended. The round shapes were used to form the holes leading into these chambers. They will now serve as a reminder of creativity and ingenuity in design.
