The Encyclopedia Destructica Studios is where issues of the zine are printed and bound in weekly public binding parties.

Encyclopedia Destructica is an art-zine inspired from the need to explore and export contemporary arts/culture in a way that's accessible and easy to engage. These hand-bound issues provide a forum for a primordial dialogue between artists, harvesting themes from sketchbooks and journals. Encyclopedia Destructica hopes to create a community wide awareness of developing work by local artists and writers through the public forum of a zine and the intimate experience of a book. Created and distributed in a DIY ('do-it-yourself") fashion, Encyclopedia Destructica promotes this attitude as well as providing support and resources for local artists to create their own book/zine projects.

Open houses occur regularly during Lawrenceville's Final Fridays. The studios also host Destructica release parties, art exhibitions, and in the future will host a Destructica residency program & lecture Series.
