Swift Lee Office cover
Description Swift Lee Office (SLO) was founded in 2000. SLO’s founding partners, Gloria Lee, and Nathan Swift, met while at Harvard and established SLO in an artists complex in downtown L.A. SLO was launched as a multi-disciplinary design laboratory combining an architectural design studio, a hands-on prototyping workshop and a gallery showcasing the work of local L.A. artists. SLO researched and developed an experimental line of steel fitment (part furniture, part equipment) for which they received a grant from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in fine arts, an AIA/LA design award, and for which Ms. Lee received an Orerdick Teaching and Research Fellowship at the University of Michigan School of Architecture. The Stud Series exhibited SLOs interest in seriality, flexibility and the re-use/mis-use of unadorned off-the-shelf materials, ideas which continue to drive the firms work at all scales. SLO has grown to a full service architectural firm with an extensive portfolio of innovative built projects throughout the L/A/ area. Their services include pre-design, feasibility, site selection, and community outreach services for the charter K-12 education market, through design, permitting, and construction administration. Other clients include metropolitan Water District as well as commercial and single family, from renovations to new construction. SLO retains it founding spirit of inventiveness an its interest in the cross-disciplinary practice of architecture. The members of SLO think if themselves as design evangelists preaching the values of ingenious problem solving with a will to experiment, innovate and collaborate. In the face of ever-increasing building costs, regulatory complexity, and ecological imperatives, SLO whole-heartedly embraces R. Buckminster Fullers maxim of doing the most with the least, which forms the central tenant of their design philosophy, and which they view as a prerequisite to economical and sustainable design. Through it all SLO tries to keep
