This city of the future is made up of floating pyramids.
Lazzarini Design is crowdfunding the design of “Wayaland,” a hotel city that is a giant group of buoyant pyramids, inspired by ancient Mayan architecture. The pyramids are a combo of ziggurat and yacht design. The bigger main pyramids are 10 floors tall at around 30,000 square feet, and sit on basement units that have ports for boats. Other pyramids contain waterfalls, slides, sports field, bars, bedroom suites, and helipads for guests arriving by air.
The pyramids are made from steel and carbon fiber and are powered by solar energy. Each pyramid is equipped with a desolator to maintain a steady water supply, while floating gardens provide food, making the concept entirely self-sustainable. They can also move using engines and propellers is case they need to.
The firm is looking for $422,661 to build the first pyramid, which will only have 2 floors and will cost guests around $1,200 a night. It’s still unclear where these pyramids will call home. But if the concept gets off the ground, the beginnings of the city can open as early as 2022. Maybe soon, vacations and getaways will entail floating on the water in your own personal pyramid.
