Fallen Star: A Hut on Top of a Modern Building

A cottage sitting alone, but on top of a building. We are pretty sure there’s some connection to Up here; well, probably not. Artist Do Ho Suh proposed the “Fallen Star” to UC San Diego’s Stuart Collection and had the fortune to see it realized.

The cottage was built from scratch, then lifted about a 100 feet by a crane and was finally placed at top of the Jacobs Hall, also known as Engineering Building 1. The roof of the building also serves as a garden for the house with a plum tree, wisteria vine, tomatoes and of course, grass.
