Why Is There Is A House Sprouting From Atop This 7-Story Building?


Fallen Star, a cottage built from scratch and permanently joined to an existing building on the campus at UC San Diego, is the latest piece of work from South Korean installation artist Do Ho Suh.

Seven years after the artist’s initial sketch, Fallen Star is ready for visitors; the 70,000-pound house has opened to the public.
