This will be my second uninhabitable house post of the day, but I couldn’t resist. This amazing (non-livable) house is not only a work of art, but an extraordinary statement about co-existing on our crowded, diverse planet.

Built in 2010 by architect/artist Do Ho Suh, this mixed-media installation has a steel and wood frame and is finished with marine plywood. It is located between two existing buildings in Liverpool, England. It was recently featured on the website designboom.com.

I love this little place, not just for it’s precarious position and miniature design, but also for the social tension it vividly portrays… if anyone needs a little help with that, the artists have spelled it out on the building next door:

Enough said.

Peace!
