These weird Spongebobesque structures were apparently model houses for astronauts. They sit decaying delightfully in the grounds of the observatory in the Hat Yai District, Songkhla in Thailand. The Observatory and these bizarre things can be visited in the Hat Yai Park. They seem to stare with dulled eyes right back at the viewer, an anthropomorphic gem! Abandoned and ageing with a splendid eerie character, yet surprisingly they sit in a children’s play area!
My friend Joe Murray recently posted these photos while on holiday. He has kindly given me permission to share them! Nice one Joe! He described the interiors: ‘The perspex widows were so blown, it looked like cataracts. Also a complete tip inside so of no photographic interest.’
