For past couple of months, the localities of Tilburg in the Netherlands got bore hearing about the artistic creation of rotating house by renowned architect John Körmeling. Seemingly weird, the making of the project took nearly a decade and its pro-active nature involves a 360 degree churn by standing on the smack dab in the Hasselt roughly. The dot has been chosen to feature artistc creation and the parody is it is being witnessed as the essential gateways to the city. Driven by solar panels, the full-scale model house (5 meters wide, 8.5 meters deep and 10 meters high) starts its rotation in the direction of the traffic and completes a single revolving every 20 hours, which is been seen as a disturbing factor for visitors commuting all the way from remotest corner of the world. The house is unoccupied, but if a drunken bum happens to enter it then he would be in for one hell of a menace.

Offering friendly look and feel, this house won’t be entertaining human habitation as it comprises of steel construction enclosed with red brick strips and tiles. Featuring front and back garden, the windows are made of plastic-coated glass with white window frames. The monumental creation by Körmeling would surely become a landmark for the cultural city of Tilburg. It would make its recognition not only at national space but would attain visibility at International geography as well. The house will lead to relations with the fair, traffic and emblematically reinstates the ribbon building characteristic of Tilburg. The anticipated budget for this artistic assignment amounts to € 350,000 excluding VAT.
The floor behavior and the groundwork will be approved out by the company Liebregts from Middelbeers and the structure of the house by the company Moker from Belgium. The house will be finalized by John Körmeling. The rotating apparatus will be primed by KMG from Neede.
