Wanli UFO Village

Fun Friday -The Abandoned Wanli UFO Village in Taiwan

We need some entertainment after seeing tons of dropped ceilings and peeling laminate floors, so Old Houses Under Under $50k is introducing Fun Friday. It is a collection of weird old structures, NOT for sale, simply of interest.  Today we visit the abandoned Wanli UFO Village in Taiwan.

These whimsical structures, known as Futuro houses, were designed by Finnish architect Matti Suuronen.  Resembling flying saucers,  the pre-fabricated plastic pods were originally built for use as ski chalets. They were  constructed of a lightweight material adaptable to any terrain, so investors thought they would make perfect guest houses at the Wanli UFO Village in Taiwan, a proposed beachside vacation resort.


With interiors boasting a sitting area, kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom, who wouldn’t want to send photos home of such a unique, out-of-this-world getaway?




Unfortunately, the investors suffered financial issues, and the UFO village never got off the ground. These fiberglass oddities now stand abandoned in a state of decay.
