EXT+SOA is an experimental design studio that seeks to subvert the studio process. The collaborative installation manifests spatial manipulations from a formal background of architectural education. The piece was conceived over the course of four days in a collaboration between design critics from Oculus Art Collaborative, a non-profit organization that seeks to foster DIY collective creativity, and students from the New Jersey Institute of Technology's School of Architecture, titled EXT+SOA (extension/school of architecture). By extending processes from the classroom: bringing the design process out of the architecture studio and applying the same techniques to a reachable, pragmatic end result, the installation explores the intersection between architecture, installation, and materiality in an experimental manner using sourced material.
