Believe it or not, this house isn’t taken from the set of The Wizard of Oz.

The Fallen Star is an art installation at the University of California San Diego by artist Do Ho Suh. The Fallen Star sits on top of the Engineering building and is cantilevered at an angle on the corner of the seventh floor.

The home is a slightly smaller replica of a house in Rhode Island and was officially completed last Fall.

According to The Daily Mail, it was recently hoisted 100ft into the air by America’s largest crane. The home is furnished and accessorized with details like family photos and a remote control.

Better yet? At night, the television screen and house lights flicker.

Surprisingly, the house conforms to California’s earthquake building code and can withstand winds of up to 100 miles per hour.

Check out the crazy pictures below:
