The Italian designer Pierpaolo Lazzarini, who became famous, thanks to his project of the floating house UFO 2.0, did not stop at what has been achieved. His next, even more ambitious project – Wayaland involves the creation of a whole city, consisting of floating pyramidal modules – Waya. Their concept Lazzarini drew from the Japanese and ancient architecture of the Maya.

The modules will be made of modern, durable and light materials – fiberglass, carbon and steel. Wayaland's energy will be fully provided by solar panels and water turbines. Because the modules perform different functions, they all have different sizes. So, some of the modules are intended for living, in others, for example, greenhouses, hotels and cinemas can be accommodated. It is assumed that the maximum height of the module does not exceed 30 meters.

 City of Floating Pyramids

The basis of the modules is large floating platforms with rooms located below the water level and designed for additional bedrooms. With the help of engines, the modules will be able to move independently, plus a small pier for boats and other small vessels is provided in each pyramid.

According to Lazzarini, the first, the smallest module will cost about 350,000 euros. To promote the project and earn start-up capital it is supposed to conduct crowdfunding, as well as offer all those wishing to stay in the module for 1000 euros per night. Another form of participation in the project is proposed – to vote for a place (from the proposed list), where Wayaland will “anchor”. If everything goes according to plan, then its presentation can take place already in 2022.
