In my latest episode of the Stanford Lee Show I talked about what we used to think the future would look like and what it really looks like now. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy with the life I have now, but man I wish we had some of those cool flying cars like the Jetsons had. Come on, you know you want one too!
While I did my research for this episode I came across some super cool futuristic houses. Have you seen them? The funky UFO looking homes by a Finnish architect Matti Suuronen are really cool to look at. They came in a variety of colors and the inside looked surprisingly spacious. I would love to be able to walk into one in real life. Fun fact: Did you know that there is an entire village filled with these futuristic homes? It's been uninhabited for years, but the structures still stand and attract tourists fairly regularly.
The Wanli UFO Village stands in New Taipei, Taiwan and is filled with Futuro and Venturo structures. The village was created by Su Ming who envisioned it as a holiday resort; however, with rising oil prices and a less than satisfactory interest from the public, the park eventually fell into disrepair. While the fine details of the resort's production and eventual downfall are unclear, the area is still available for visitors to walk through and take pictures.
Have you ever been to the UFO village? Let me know in the comments below and tell me what you thought of it!
