‘ReActor’ house rotates atop a concrete column

'ReActor' house rotates atop a concrete columnREACTOR is the latest work in an experimental series of ‘social relationship architecture’ designed and built by artists Alex Schweder and Ward Shelley.

This summer, for 5 days, the architect-artist duo lived in the rotating house, located in New York. The sculpture measures 13.4 x 2.4m and rotates a complete 360-degrees atop a 4.5m concrete column.

The symmetrical structure has been divided in half – each artist allocated their own living quarters. A shared bathroom is positioned at the center of the plan. The design also includes two external balconies — one for each artist at each end of the structure.

As part of the architecture OMI exhibition ‘Wood: from structure to enclosure’, REACTOR offers visitors a special appearance on september 24-25, 2016, and a further five-day performance from october 6 – 10, 2016.
