ReActor, 2016
Wood and concrete
16'x44'x8'

ReActor is an experimental, performative work of "social relationship architecture" designed and built by internationally renowned architect-artist duo Alex Schweder + Ward Shelley.

Located in Architecture Omi's Field 01, ReActor is a habitable sculpture, where Schweder + Shelley periodically live in full view of Omi's audience. The 44-foot by 8-foot structure rotates 360-degrees atop a 15-foot concrete column in response to its inhabitants' movements, exterior forces, and interior conditions, making visible the intimate relationship between architecture and its inhabitants.

ReActor is part of the 2016-17 Architecture Omi exhibition WOOD: From Structure to Enclosure.
