The FLOATING pyramid city: Community 'will live in solar-powered $490,000 buildings made up from modules chosen by each homeowner'

The FLOATING pyramid city: Community 'will live in solar-powered £350,000 buildings

  • Italian designer  is crowdfunding 'Wayaland' - a community where residents live in floating pyramids
  • Owners can stack 'modules' on a floating square base to make up their custom-made pyramid home 
  • Supporters will able to vote on where in the world 'Wayaland' will be 'built', with a view of opening in 2022
  • There will also be shopping, gym, restaurant, greenhouse and cinema pyramids to entertain the community

An Italian design study is building a floating pyramid city, where starter homes will set back prospective residents £350,000.

'Wayaland' - a new town to be built on a yet-to-be-determined location - will comprise bouyant so-called 'Waya modules', with the aim of being ready for its first residents to move in come 2022.

Rome-based Lazzarini Design Studio is currently crowdfunding for the £350,000 to build the first 'Waya module', with potential investors being given the opportunity to vote on where 'Wayaland' will be built.

Climb aboard: Each Waya home will be unique, and the owner can build their own pyramid from suggested modules - and add an underwater 'basement'

To make up the cash, the design studio is selling stays in the first Waya module - inspired by Mayan architecture and Japanese temples - at £1,000 per night. 

Lazzarini Design say: 'The modular Waya pyramid can offer 'different living and entertainment settings', such as hotel, shops, spa, gym, bars, greenhouse for produce or cinema.

In order to complete the main Waya pyramid, different modules are stacked on the floating base.

The biggest base is 31,387sq.ft, on which the prospective owner can stack the different modules they would like to make up their new floating pyramid home. 

The base holds a large entrance for boats and the reception to access the rooms. 

By the seaside: The plan is for Wayaland to have homes of all sizes, as well as football and tennis courts, cinemas, shopping centres and restaurants

'By subdividing its height over ten different floors, with a total surface of 6,500sq.m. (69,965sq.ft.), the complete Waya reaches a maximum height of 30m (98.5ft) from the waterline,' say Lazzarini Design. 

Lazzarini Design say: 'The modular Waya pyramid can offer 'different living and entertainment settings', such as hotel, shops, spa, gym, bars, greenhouse for produce or cinema. 

Each Waya module can be coupled with a specific floating basement, creating itself another customised floating building.

The energy, provided autonomously from solar panels and water turbines, contribute to power with clean energy all the services and systems of the pyramids, including desalinators which are located in the storage under the main level.

In the sub merged part of each floating structure, a large amount of storage space is used for the engines, equipments, generators or additional energy resources.

The floating modules, anchored to keep the position, will be also easily adjustable, while maneuvering with the lower mounted engines.

The chassis, composed in part from fiberglass, carbon and steel, will be assembled piece by piece while climbing the structure, after placed the basement, directly in the water.

Covered from surfaced solar panels, all the external surfaces of the Waya will be able to store energy from the sun.
