Seven years in the making, the Fallen Star art installation is finally complete. Unveiled on June 7, 2012, it is a permanent sculpture that will forever stay precariously perched on top of UCSD’s Jacobs Hall at the Jacobs School of Engineering in San Diego, California. The Fallen Star installation might be an odd place for a home, something straight out of a Harry Potter novel, but the home itself is odd.

Created by famed Korean sculptor Do Ho Suh, the Fallen Star installation was commissioned by UCSD’s Stuart Collection. Funded by $1.3 million in private donations, the house looks like is crash-landed on the seventh floor roof--front lawn, brick walkway, garden, lawn chairs and all. It explores the Suh's ongoing exploration of home and cultural displacement. Stats for Precariously Perched Homes Trending: Older & Warm
