  Talk about unusual artwork.

An entire 70,000-pound house was hoisted up to the top of a seven-story building at UC San Diego on Tuesday, part of the Stuart Art Collection. The piece, created by artist Do Ho Suh, looks like a house that crashed into the engineering building on campus, according to Fox 5 San Diego.

The 15-by-18-foot, blue Rhode Island-like cottage was lifted 100 feet in the air and attached atop the Jacobs School of Engineering building at UCSD.
