ReActor, is a 42 by 8-foot rotating home that balances on a single 14-foot tall concrete column.
In the rolling hills of upstate New York The project made in collaboration with Ward Shelley, this project is built on a hill the OMI International Arts Center’s Architecture Field . Balanced atop a single column, ReActor twirls when the wind blows and tilts see-saw like with the shifting weight of its inhabitants. Schweder and Shelley have collaborated since 2007, focusing on “performance architecture,” a practice of designing, building, and living in structures for the purpose of public observation and dialogue.
