‘Fallen Star’: A house that lives on the edge (15 Photos)

    A half million dollars?!!! Just because this guy felt "displaced"? Couldn't we have just left this guy in Korea, and used that money to send an American born kid to engineering school?

    • hmmm

      his feeling of displacement might be because of douchebags like you

  • Damian

    Displacement from Korea, damn does he like kimchi that much?

    A team of engineers took years to figure out how to do that? Gimme a break, its not much different from a cantilevered deck or balcony, just on a different scale, bolted to a huge concrete monolith, and for an artistic rather than utilitable purpose. I won't question the reason for it -since art is too subjective – but the alleged demand of engineering resources seems ridiculous. They figure out bridges and skyscrapers quicker than that, don't they? But what do I know?!

    Not open to the public? What a waste of money.

  • Lou

    Its nice but couldn't he have just written a book?

  • Joshy

    As a civil engineer, I would say it's more of an engineering achievement than architectural achievement. There's a difference

    Pixar should pay to have a bunch of balloons attached … just sayin'.

  • sam

    half a million to represent feeling uprooted?…. what a waste.

  • themadzak

    Nearly a half million dollars to build a house that no one is allowed to visit. Hmmm….I wonder how many scholarships that comes to?

    They gave him half a million dollars to make this shit but I can't find funding of a couple of dollars for a single beer…

    At half a mil, with that view and easy access to campus, it's probably the best real estate value on a 1 bedroom anywhere in San Diego.

  • The Clit Commander

    please, you dumb fucks, shut up. the money came from grants, not the school or the state, and its open for students. Idk about the public. This guy's making art on rooftops while you guys are stuck on the computer bitching

  • Alexandra
