After tackling the charts, sneakers, reality television and, well, everything else, Kanye West is turning his eyes to the world of affordable housing. Yeezy Home is an upstart idea from the mogul that wants to break the barriers that separate the classes by creating housing communities filled with dome-like living structures. As detailed in an interview with Forbes, they are “Inspired by Luke Skywalker’s childhood home, West has been working with a team to design prefabricated structures that sport the same austere aesthetic, with the goal of deploying them as low-income housing units.” There are a number of prototypes currently under construction on 300 acres of West land in Calabasas, but there’s still no word yet on when, where and if these otherworldly structures will ever be deployed in real-life environments. If West has his way, and he generally does, they could be “used as living spaces for the homeless, perhaps sunk into the ground with light filtering in through the top.” We’d live in one.
