When one thinks of floating hotels, the mind wanders to luxurious yachts and sizable boats. Architect Pierpaolo Lazzarini, however, has a more innovative vision. Drawing design inspiration from Mayan architecture, Egyptian pyramids and the Japanese temples, the professional utilizes a multicultural approach toward a modular system-based floating city-hotel.
The main pyramid is envisioned to be atop a 3,000 square meter floating basement unit. The constructions will boast slides and waterfalls, and there will be numerous small pyramid-like structures that house things like suites, bars and storages.
The floating hotels are to be constructed of fiberglass, carbon and steel. Pierpaolo Lazzarini ensures that both the interior and the exterior of Wayaland — "the name for the conglomeration of buoyant platforms" is ultra-luxurious.
