[Abandoned Pods]…The San Zhi UFO Houses

I’m not sure if I’ve posted about these before, but I was browsing through Flickr the other night for unique architecture and I came across these images of the abandoned San Zhi apartment complex in Taiwan. Apparently there’s this abandoned resort off the coast of Taiwan that was built in the 70’s. For some reason, the resort never really prospered, so these neat buildings were left to rot. Check it out…

(These photos are all from Flickr user Yusheng’s photoset.)

Now I think  these are pretty damn cool! They’re so reminiscent of the time when futuristic equaled round and bulbous. I would have loved to stay in one of these neat pods. I also like that they’re all different colors. This would be a GREAT place for a photoshoot…Neat!

  1. They look cool. I think I remember hearing about them. The structure of the buildings made them hard to live in or something like that.
