Sanjhih is a small town on the north coast of Taiwan, near Taipei.
In late 70’s, a keeper of a rubber company worked out the prototype of the UFO house using his own factory.
However, the company closed down in the energy crisis in 1980.

In 1989, a development company bought the unfinished UFO houses. They planned to make it a five stars resort hotel. Almost a year after, they decided to shutdown.
Then the buildings was abandoned until now.”.
