Look Out for That House! School's Wild Art Installation

This house didn't just fall out of the sky, but Korean artist Do Ho Suh might want you to think it did. On top of the University of California, San Diego's Jacobs School of Engineering building sits "Fallen Star," the newest art installation for UCSD's Stuart Collection.

The 270-square-foot New England-style cottage sits at a 10-degree incline, seven stories off the ground. It is completely furnished and even comes with a front yard, garden and patio (which can double as a rooftop garden for the engineering building). According to Suh, the installation is a reflection on how he felt when leaving South Korea to study in the U.S., "as if he was dropped from the sky."

The entire project took seven years to complete and cost $1.3 million, the majority of which came from private donors and a $90,000 grant from the National Endowments of the Arts.

And in true California fashion, this building is up to code: It is earthquake resistant and can withstand 100 mph winds.
