Luxury architect Pierpaolo Lezzerini is creating the world's first fully floating and fully functioning living community called the Wayaland Floating Community.

Each structure is buoyant and shaped like a pyramid -- inspired by a fusion of Japanese temples and traditional Mayan architecture. Different modules can be paired together to create a custom area such as housing, shops, restaurants and spas, eventually coming together in one large city. Currently, there are fully built models for a hotel, club, villa and a suite as well as a modular creation that allows for the function to be flexible.

With crowdfunding currently underway, the first structure for the Wayaland Floating Community is set to finish in 2022, as a futuristic, eco-friendly and luxurious housing alternative.
