Funding Underway For Landmark Floating Pyramid Community


Famed Italian designer, Pierpaolo Lazzarini, the man behind the UFO 2.0 floating home, hopes to change the way people live with the concept of a community made up of solar-powered pyramid-shaped buildings.

The Wayaland project, which is still in early stages, would consist of multiple floating pyramid-shaped modules called Waya, which are inspired by Mayan and Japanese architecture. Each module would come in different sizes and serve different purposes, with some functioning as homes, while others would be hotels, greenhouses and cinemas.

Wayaland's pyramid-shaped structures would be made from fiberglass, carbon and steel and in current proposals, the largest would rise to 30 metres above the water line. The structures would be moved with motors and include a small marina for boats and other water craft to moor. Each would receive electricity from rooftop solar panel arrays and water turbines

Lazzarini aims to launch a crowdfunding campaign to bring this futuristic dream into reality, claiming he would need €350,000 to build the smallest unit. As part of the crowdfunding campaign, he is offering people a stay in the module for the cost of €1,000 per night.

Other promised benefits include a vote on where Wayaland would be located from a pre-selected list of suitable locations, as well as an invitation to a planned 2022 inauguration.
