In 1991, Los Angeles-based artist Chris Burden decided to add a studio structure on his own property, but he wanted to make it as big as he could without a building permit. After pouring over the building code, he found he could build a detached structure as long as it was under 400 square feet and under 35 feet tall.
The result, Burden’s Small Skyscraper (Quasi-Legal Skyscraper), was intended to be “a modern day log cabin” that “two guys with a donkey could put up, and when the neighbor calls the building inspector, the guys can take it down again,” he told LA Weekly back in 2003.
In late 2011, Broad built a 30-story building in 15 days; now it intends to use similar methods to erect the world’s tallest building in just seven months.
