Kanye West Reveals New Housing Project
Kanye West is building the future of housing.
The multi-faceted rapper is moving forward with his revolutionary new project, constructing the architectural concept on his property in the hills of Calabasas, Calif. Construction crews have been hard at work for weeks working on the dome-like structures, which each stand around 50 feet high.
The housing community sits on a portion of the 300 acres Kanye purchased a few years ago. The project has been well-guarded, but TMZ has obtained the first image of the prototypes.

Kanye hopes the prefabricated structures will revolutionize the design for new age homes and break down class barriers that separate the rich, middle class, and the poor.
Sources say the project is in an “early state” but the goal is to make “dynamic” housing communities the world can enjoy. Ye and his team are studying dwellings “from every period of man’s existence on earth,” and those who have visited the property say the proportions feel “otherworldly.”
During a recent interview with Forbes, he previewed the prototypes, which were inspired by Luke Skywalker’s childhood home from Star Wars. West has been working with a team to design structures with a similar aesthetic, with the goal of developing them as low-income housing units.
