WSOA In-Flux is a publishing platform for student work launched by Woodbury School of Architecture in 2020.

Woodbury School of Architecture is distinguished by its multiple locations at the heart of the Southern California creative industries: Los Angeles, Hollywood and San Diego. Together, these sites form a critical infrastructure for architectural investigations.

Our undergraduate and graduate programs prepare students to effect positive change in the built environment, to tackle theoretical debates, and to take on architecture and interior design as critical practices. We educate our students as entrepreneurs, citizen architects, and cultural builders equally committed to professional practice, theoretical discourse, social equity and to formal and technological inquiry.

Our faculty are architects, designers, academics and policy makers practicing in Los Angeles, San Diego and Tijuana. This internationally recognized and award-winning group works closely with students to teach the skills required to push the limits of practice.


Good design is a human right. Woodbury School of Architecture produces graduates who affirm the power of design to improve the built environment and the lives of others by addressing the pressing issues of our time. We transform our students into ethical, articulate and innovative design professionals prepared to lead in a world of accelerating technological change.


The future belongs to Woodbury. Woodbury School of Architecture creates an environment that empowers our students to impact the future of the profession through meaningful built work. We imagine a world in which there are no disciplinary rights or wrongs, where diverse and sometimes contradictory values collide to generate new ideas, design innovation, unexpected practices, and the means to expand the influence of our discipline.

Woodbury School of Architecture offers a welcoming environment for students to develop their own unique design voice.  We approach the design disciplines multi-dimensionally, teaching a range of pedagogies and design methodologies. Our students leave Woodbury with the confidence to engage in local and global discourse.

Through engaged faculty-student interaction, we transform our students into innovative professionals with a commitment to the power of good design. Our students and faculty share a commitment to sustainable practices, community outreach and civic engagement.

Our School of Architecture is among the first 14 accredited architectural programs to be accepted for participation in the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) Integrated Path to Architectural Licensure (IPAL) initiative. Successful students will have the opportunity to have an architectural license upon graduation.

We believe that our school is a role model for the direction in which the profession is heading – improving gender parity and ethnic diversity among its members, and reaffirming the importance of ethical conduct and social responsibility. Ours is a welcoming community for every race and orientation, and we resist acts of intolerance in favor of thoughtfulness, generosity and kindness. The economic, ethnic, and academic backgrounds of our students reflect Southern California itself. We are determined to provide a place for open debate, the respectful airing of differences, and for rich forms of expression and imagination.

Work by B.Arch student Alexandra Terrones

Is there space for a forest in Los Angeles? A swamp?

Its characteristic darkness, sogginess, densities, wildness, as well as folklores - are qualities we think of as opposite to the city - and yet they are the ones we might increasingly need.

Can the forest return to the city in a new form, and, in a clever way - provide a technology, a spatial one, which solves some of the most pressing environmental urgencies facing urbanities today?

Work by B.Arch student Joseph Monck

The Topic Studio focuses on the idea of marginal environments as disruptors of the status quo in cities - as places of refuge of marginalized people, excluded ideas, but also as places of experimentation: of propositions of new models for societies and their spaces.

The studio will explore how architecture can become a device, a spatial armature and infrastructure for such environments and their new urban and social roles. We will also look at the history of marginal environments and those who have occupied them, the collective imaginary of “dangerous” landscapes such as forest and swamps, the contemporary ideas of Environmental Commons as public space, and the emergence of new urban natures.

The projects will explore both the urban strategy and the highly articulated architectural, human scale of propositions. A workshop with artist Ibiye Camp will introduce photogrammetry 3D scanning, VR and AR as a way of sensing and constructing spaces.

Catalog Description

The studio intent is to explore and test architectural design as it relates to one or more special contemporary issues. The studio is open to both fourth and fifth year students.
