This House Actually Rotates

This is an interesting building project, although not one most of you out there will be interested in, I’m guessing, as far as practical application to your own prefab home, modular house or tiny house, or whatever you’re building or considering building.

This was a project undertaken by some artists at Art Omi in New York, Alex Schweder and Ward Shelley, and they refer to it as the “ReActor.”

It has all the amenities of most houses: Kitchen, bathroom, living room, and space enough for two people, as planned.

However the whole house spins.

And they lived in it for 5 days, reportedly. Based on changes in the center of gravity in the house, it rotates, not just around, but up and down — it tilts. It’s a 13 meter by 2.5 meter tilting house project. I have no idea why. For more interesting homes, find them in the Building Homes and Living directory.
