Recently on display at the OMI International Arts Center in Ghent, New York, was this unique piece of architecture. Designed and built by architect-artist duo Alex Schweder and Ward Shelley, the ‘ReActor‘ is a habitable sculpture where they lived for a five-day performance.
The structure, which measures in at 44-foot by 8-foot, rotates 360-degrees and sits on top of a 15-foot concrete column.

The structure moves and rotates in response to its inhabitants’ movements, exterior forces, and interior conditions.
Not only does the structure spin, it also tilts.
And here’s a look at the duo behind it.
