THE life-sized cottage, called Falling Star, is the result of seven years work by Korean artist Do Ho Suh.
It was built as a three-quarter-size replica of a real house in Providence, Rhode Island, US - and comes complete with working electrics and even a garden.
Mechanical controls cause the lights and TV to flicker on at night and steam rises from the chimney, simulating steam.
After being completed last autumn, it was hoisted 100ft into place with the help of America’s largest crane
And it certainly isn’t going anywhere soon, as the artwork has been built to comply with California earthquake building codes, as well as withstand 100mph winds. Mary Beebe, director of the university’s Stuart Collection of art, said the work explores the idea of “home”.
She said: “I hope that these ideas are relevant for students, many of whom have left their homes for the first time and come from afar. –TS
