In 1978, a Chinese company known as Hung Kuo Group decided to build a specialized retreat in New Taipei City, Taiwan. This property has become legendary for a number of reasons. First off, its structures looked like something that we might see in future space colonies, yet this was from 1978. Secondly, the place didn’t make it through two years of construction before the project was shut down.
Why was it shut down? Why has the land been relatively unused since? That is the most interesting part of the story.
