In the late ’70s, a series of Futuro-style homes were constructed in the Sanzhi District of New Taipei City, Taiwan. The pod-shaped houses were part of an intended vacation resort, apparently set to be marketed to U.S. military officers who lived in East Asia part-time. The development was abandoned before anyone could move in — mainly for financial reasons it seems, but there are superstitious stories about the land being a burial ground and talk of several accidents happening on the construction site. The Sanzhi UFO pod houses were demolished a few years ago, but many curious visitors have photographed the strange flying saucer-style abodes. Get a closer look in our gallery past the break.
