This paper describes the design process, hydraulic stability tests and construction of two single-layer Cubipod armored breakwaters in the Port of Punta Langosteira (A Coruña, Spain), located on the Atlantic coast of Spain, the first single-layer armors of randomly placed massive concrete armor units. The environmental, geotechnical, economic and logistic conditions favored randomly-placed Cubipods in single-layer armoring. 3D hydraulic stability tests of single-layer Cubipod armored
