This Eco-Friendly Futuristic Floating City Concept Is Now Enrolling Citizens

Here at OddityMall, we like to be on the cutting edge. Sure, we goof off every once in a while (chicken arms, anyone?), but most of the time we’re looking to share stuff that’s innovative, unique, and destined to change the world. Now that you’ve seen it, can you imagine a world without the futuristic Estrella superyacht or the world’s first solar-powered campervan? Didn’t think so!

Today’s subject is more of an idea than a product. Buckle your seatbelts and allow me to introduce you to Waya, a floating, eco-friendly community that wouldn’t seem out of place in the movie Waterworld.

Designed by Pierpaolo Lazzarini, Wayaland is a city made of modular, pyramid-like buildings that float on the surface of the ocean.

Each pyramid features solar panels and water turbines to generate endless supplies of energy, so the city itself is completely self-sustainable.

The pyramids consist of modular components that can be mixed and matched over a 54 meter by 54 meter foundation, providing endless varieties of services, such as hotels, spas, cinemas, restaurants, and more.

Once complete, a Waya pyramid has a height of 30 meters from the surface of the water, plus there's even a spot to park a massive yacht under it!

The shape of the pyramid also provides maximum space for residents while maintaining structural stability, with a total surface area of 6500 square meters.

The parts that contain the generators and energy facilities are submerged under the surface of the water, so your residents will never know they’re there.

Each pyramid has a chassis constructed from fiberglass, carbon, and steel to ensure it can hold up to the elements, waves, and potential storms that may come through.

The whole project seems a little apocalyptic and strange to me, but it actually makes a lot of sense when you think about it. Self-sustainability is a must if we want a livable world for future generations, and living on the water gives residents access to limitless energy sources.

The modular design could also make Wayland suitable for people from all walks of life and every continent. There will be different floating cities across the globe, and you'll essentially be able to choose which one you'd like to live at.

The Waya website offers four modular pyramid types to look at: the hotel, the suite, the villa, and the club.

Computer generated images of the planned designs are a cross between the absolute peak of luxury and sci-fi futurism (some even feature weird, flying saucer-like aircrafts), so it’s hard to imagine these ocean-bound buildings actually existing.

That being said, Lazzarini Design is already crowdfunding for a 2022 launch.

Contribute €1 to the project and your name will be added to the contributors list. Contribute €10 and you’ll be listed as a Waya keyholder. If you want to pay €100, you’ll get everything mentioned above AND a Wayaland passport. If you’re ready to make a €1000 contribution, you’ll get all of that good stuff and one free night in a Waya Suite once the project officially launches.

The project has plans to build floating cities all over the world, from the Northernmost tip of North America to the coast of Southeast Asia. Personally, I’m a little skeptical that they’ll be able to pull it off in time, but it’s hard to not be impressed!

Some pyramid vessels it seems will be devoted solely for gardening and growing plants, veggies, and fruits!

The garden pyramid will be like a shared floating greenhouse where anyone can grow their own plants!

The futuristic Maya floating city was actually inspired from the Mayan's architecture, and partly from a Japanese temple!

On top of the futuristic pyramids it seems will also be optional helicopter pads where you can quickly get to and from the floating city from the mainland.
