Throughout the annals of recorded history, man has always dreamed of making the ocean his domain. Architect Pierpaolo Lezzerini’s fantastic vision of a buoyant city on the water mixes Mayan and Japanese architectural influence to create his concept Wayaland, a remarkable vision of a future, afloat. From Lazzerini’s imagination springs a luxury watery community, equipped with everything that a small populace needs, including shops, restaurants, bars, spas, gyms, tennis courts, a movie theater, and even a casino.
A collection of island domiciles constellate the city; solar powered pyramids float on the water surface, anchored to the ground and able to be adjusted in position by mounted engines on their bases. Don’t take a gondola into town, instead take one of the capsule-like speed boats of which Wayaland boasts an armada.
The mothership, so to speak – the central pyramid of Wayaland – has a large, 54 by 54 meter basement basement. Boats can enter and anchor within that base module. The tallest pyramid in the small city stands at 30 feet above the water level. Self-sustenance is an integral focus in Lazzerini’s project, and as such solar panels and water turbines contribute the bulk of the power supply in this concept.
