More than 50 students, from Fine Art and Architecture at the University of Newcastle and Newcastle College, formed two groups of builders who constructed and de-constructed two identical shells of House simultaneously for 22 hours. The shells were built out of bricks and mortar up to first floor level and juxtaposed with each other in rotational symmetry. The project was synchronized so that the construction and de-construction was choreographed sequentially: the opposite segments of the shells slowly moved around each other until House was completed.
