SLO Architecture is a full-service firm licensed to practice Architecture in both the United States and Spain. Principals Amanda Schachter and Alexander Levi founded Schachter Levi Office in Madrid in 2005, and since 2007, SLO is based in New York City.
SLO links realms of urban and architectural design with artistic production and social action, bringing together heterogeneous participants, from expert practitioners and city agencies to rooted local teens and volunteers, to revindicate social, physical and cultural conditions of neighborhoods on perceived margins of the city.
SLO's recent and ongoing projects envision connections forged along urban waterways in distressed areas, long fragmented by infrastructural rights-of-way, industry, abandonment, and contamination.
In SLO work, conceptual and material invention are coupled with exacting fabrication and productive collaboration with local partners, including the Urban Park Rangers and Public Art Program of the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation, the Bronx River Alliance, Youth Ministries for Peace & Justice, and Inwood Community Services.
