Lack Stosser Lack and Strosser Architects, of Lewisburg, PA is another highly qualified "local" firm. Their "local" connection stems from the fact that Bob Lack grew up in nearby Summit Hill. Lack and Strosser is exceptional at capturing the intent of the developers with whom they work. They translate that intent into beautiful, workable and practical plans. Their design for the downtown Sky Tram Observation Deck and Ticketing Center, and the Mountaintop Glass Corridor has captured perfectly the developers' vision for the project.
