pierpaolo lazzarini envisions wayaland, a floating city made of modular pyramids that offers different living and entertainment facilities including hotels, shops, spas, gyms, bars and cinemas. completed with solar panels and water turbines for energy supply, the project aims to provide a new offshore living experience within a self-sustainable community.

the main waya pyramid comprises different modules that overlap on a floating 54 by 54-meter basement, offering a total surface of about 3000 m2. the basement includes a large entrance for boats and a reception, while the part of each module submerged underwater stores engines, equipment, additional energy sources and generators. dividing the height in ten different floors with a total surface of 6500 m2, the complete waya reaches a maximum height of 30 meters from the waterline.

lazzarini has launched a crowdfunding campaign to initialize the building process of wayaland with the smaller, two-floor module (10m x 10m). accordingly to the designer, 350.000 euros are required to build the first waya suite, a sum he plans to source from offering the possibility to pre-book available nights for 2022 at 1000 euros per night. each investor will become a citizen of wayaland and will receive the waya passport (an invitation for 2022 inauguration).

  • Society on water….. of course there a lot of question to answer. Who is this really for (Rich/Middle Class? Is this a place you just vacation or a place you live? How far off shore will this be? How about hospitals, law enforcement? Grocery? Laundry etc.? It does look enticing but still can this concept sustain normal living or is it just for vacationing?

  • Cheap sci-fi, though.

  • Well, sounds like “we f***** the whole world, we stole their money, we got commisions out of nowhere, we frivolized politics, we messed with their education and we practicaly rule the world so let´s go where nobody could come after us” – As my father says “nobody gets rich being a good person and most of them have made something more than questionable”. According to this i guess what kind of people is going to be living there, and according to my experience since this people are also my client profile… well, let´s just say i have seen better designs by amazing architects and engineers which are way better than these and made for everyone. The difference might be this one got more sponsors. For a world with less flighty as*h***s, please.

  • They already have built those drone crafts and those little boats you see. I see this idea happening, and yes the ones with money will have one, I’ll take two myself.
