This house known as 'Fallen Star', located at UCSD's Jacobs Hall at Jacobs School of Engineering, is an amazing architectural achievement. It took a team of engineers and other experts several years to plan and construct and nearly half a million dollars. Though the up-tilted floor and seemingly precipitous overhang might deter the faint of heart, it's totally safe. But alas, there's no welcome mat for the general public. Sculptor and creator, from Korea, Ho Ga (Do Ho Suh)  says “Fallen House” is about “displacement” – his personal experience of being uprooted and displaced from Korea to America.
