Strang's own home in Coconut Grove was featured in the Michael Mann film "Miami Vice".[2] In 2007, his Schokman Education Center was completed on the grounds of The Kampong, a botanical garden which is part of the National Tropical Botanical Garden.[3] "The sensitive and eloquent new open-air education pavilion" allows for long, grand views over the sloping lawn, rare trees and mangroves out to the bay.[4] Strang was commissioned by a Miami art collector to oversee the major remodeling of his home in 2007.[5] Strang has designed a home in Winter Haven, Florida, which is expected to be that city's first LEED-certified home.[6] In 2010, Strang's practice was honored as "Firm of the Year" by AIA Miami. In 2013 he received the Silver Medal for Design.
