Floating City “terayacht” – Pangeos
It's no secret to anyone my admiration for the offshore universe in general whether at sea or isolated on land I'm always interested in the type of life. Today browsing through my google discover I found one talking about an electric floating city.
It is magnificent to think that there is a floating city capable of sailing to any continent in the world and has its own national laws. I like this idea but it seemed like an elitist idea since the ships until then were few and the prices were super expensive. This changed with the Pandemic, which made large cruise companies sell their ships, where many were transformed into floating condominiums with more affordable prices than the millionaire alternatives.
The “terayacht” – Floating city
O Pangeos the terayacht is a designer project of a mega floating city made by the design company Lazzarini design studio🇧🇷 What most draws attention to this project is the different shape of a turtle.
The floating city is 550m long and 610m wide and offers capacity for up to 60,000 people. This is an audacious project that has a button on the pulp that allows the entry of other vessels, in addition to artificial beaches.
The floating city was designed to navigate with electric motors that could reach 5 knots. This project has been developed since 2019 by Lazzarini design studio and intends to get it off the ground soon at a shipyard in Saudi Arabia.
What did I think of the floating city?
I always like new things and different things, but I put this project in the field of science fiction because there are so many things that I haven't seen before that I don't even believe it's real to do. However, if they find someone who is willing to finance this project, it will be interesting to see it put into practice.
What enchants me most about this project is the possibility of a city that can navigate around. However, there are some questions I ask, will this city be able to travel in the open ocean, can it withstand the waves? And sailing through the poles will it be able to withstand the difference in temperature?
In summary, I liked the project and would like it to be successful in its challenges, which are not few, so that we can see more projects of this type.
