Defenestration Building, 6th and Howard Streets
The Defenestration Building (Howard Street side) as it appeared in the late 1990s
The Defenestration Building, a sculptural installation by Brian Goggin at Howard & 6th Streets in SF, features over 30 pieces of furniture and home-appliances welded to the exterior of an abandoned SOMA 3-story, the former Hugo Hotel. Despite endorsement by Willie Brown and funding by federal grants, the installation survived from its installation in 1997 for seventeen years.
