L’objet n’est pas le sujet. Ou alors le contraire.

Sujets and Objets, accomplice antonyms, products of their era, exquisitely sliding on the world wide free plan. As found, dispersed in a condition of material genericness and immaterial specificity, SO/ stands on the sharp edge of reality, inverting the road code but keeping the highway, in a decimal precision of words and corners.

A collective of architects interested in ways of co-existing in the broader ecosystem of artificiality, sympathetic to residues and other urban by-products, weaving a noise.

SO / is looking for 1 architect & 1 intern
