The construction of the city will take up to eight years. If the concept is realized, it will become the largest floating structure in the world ever built.
Italian design studio Lazzarini has unveiled the concept of a floating city for 60,000 guests that will be shaped like a turtle, powered by solar energy, and the preliminary cost of construction is more than $ 8 billion. The project of the city appeared on the studio's page in social networks.
The concept of the “terayacht”, called Pangeos, will include hotels, shopping centers and parks, a runway for aircraft and helipads.
< p>The turtle-shaped vessel will be 550 meters long and 610 meters wide and will take eight years to build. If the concept is realized, it will be the largest floating structure in the world ever built.
Lazzarini hopes that their ambitious concept will be built after the NFT-related crowdfunding period. Construction will take eight years. The designers suggest that a giant shipyard will have to be created specifically for this project.
“Terayacht needs Terashipyard: the concept of a vessel of a similar size includes the implementation of a concrete shipyard/dam infrastructure that is flooded to lift the “teraship” into the air when she is launched.
The imaginary infrastructure of the shipyard for construction is 650 meters wide and 600 meters long, providing direct access to the sea.
The giant Pangeos hull with a draft of 30 meters consists of nine different bows and is divided into several blocks. It is equipped with nine high-temperature superconducting motors: each 16,800 hp all-electric motor powered by a variety of onboard power sources.
“Powered by a jet-powered transmission, the terrastructure will be able to travel at five knots. While sailing, the large wings will be powered by crashing waves, and Pangeos will constantly sail emission-free across the seas of planet Earth. In addition, solar panels are installed on the roof, which provide part of the necessary clean energy to power the terayacht,” the developers said. They also revealed that they are launching a crowdfunding initiative to sell jet ski virtual spaces. Accommodation ranges from apartments and houses to “super villas” and royal palaces:
“Jet ski virtual spaces can also be purchased through the NFT. Users will be able to collect certain content and access virtual properties with their credentials.”< /p>
Pangeos takes its name from Pangea, a supercontinent that existed millions of years ago in the late Paleozoic and early Mesozoic.
“If this is realized, the turtle-shaped ship will become the world's largest floating structure from ever built,” Lazzarini stressed.
