Question Drop Ceilings and Soffits

What is the usual/prefered way to hadle ducts, pipes, etc that are in the way when installing a drop ceiling? Should I build a soffit around the duct and drywall the soffit along with the walls, or do I build the soffit out of ceiling tiles?

The duct is at the edge of the room, so I will probably just build a soffit and drywall it so that it will blend in with the wall.

Forum posters tend to recommend building the soffits. Don't forget to insulate your pipes. I once had a basement where someone didn't insulate the pipes. Condensation dripped and stained my ceiling.
