Cursed retrofuturistic resort

The UFO-shaped pods in Taipei’s Sanzhi District (Taiwan) were constructed as a resort for military officers stationed in East Asia. But a series of accidents ended construction — and started rumors that the site was cursed.

Rumor had it that a curse was placed on the project after a Chinese dragon statue was bisected near the resort gates — or because it was built on top of a burial ground for Dutch soldiers. Construction, which began in 1978, was abandoned in 1980, leaving the retrofuturistic pods to decay.

  1. Very cool – Kind of eerie – Like something out of Star Wars.
