Holiday Resort in San Jhih

1

It is an abandoned holiday resort in San Jhih, a mall town on the north coast of Taiwan. It has been abandoned for more then 20 years. People call it "UFO house". The man who supposedly designed the flying saucer room is an architect from Finland Matti Suuronen. He designed the flying saucer shape in 1968 (UFO). The glass fiber system house calls "Futuro". Bit later the same year, the production cost of Futuro became more expensive, as well as producer Polykem had not consummated the plan to develop Futuro, and sold the design idea right to many countries carelessly, therefore you can see Futuro in so many places around the world.

The one in San Jhih was built by local building company. Series of work related accidents left people dead… and pretty soon the whole country new it was haunted. If you live in Taiwan, then you know how people react to stuff like that. Anyhow, so now it’s abandoned, and they won’t demolish it because destroying the home of spirits is serious taboo. Sounds like it was suppose to be part of a grander theme park idea that was never brought to fruition. Anyhow… it’s quite a popular spot for photographers in Taiwan. I like going there during summer time, the buildings are like a big amusement parks. The spot is full of strange and amazing feeling.
