taiwan's abandoned city of ufo houses

UFO House (originally uploaded by RAY雷)
The futuristic ufo-pod houses of the Sanzhi vacation resort in Taiwan were aimed at US officers on leave in New Taipei city, but deaths and money losses during construction meant it ended up abandoned soon after completion in 1978. Unfortunately, these Kubrickesque remnants of lost utopian dreams are long gone, with the site flattened for redevelopment at the end of 2008, but at least flickr photos like this one preserve them for immortality.

  1. I never knew that Taiwan had these structures. It would be a worthwhile visit to that place. It will be great to take pictures.
