Kanye West Is Constructing ‘Star Wars’-Themed Low Income Housing Units
Kanye West is really making his dreams of constructing homes a reality.
According to Forbes latest cover story, which was published Tuesday (July 9), 'Ye has begun construction on low-income homes that are inspired by the architecture of houses in Tatooine, a fictional city from the Star Wars saga. The business magazine shares details about their visit to a clearing in the middle of the woods where model structures of the housing units are kept.
'Ye plans to market the structures as low-income housing along with other homes that are shaped like spaceships. Some may think that his concepts are farfetched but it's not the first outlandish idea he's had. After the California wildfires destroyed multiple communities last year, West claimed that he wanted to build a fireproof community. Unfortunately, the article does not confirm whether 'Ye intends to build his Tatooine-inspired home strong enough to withstand fire.
Prior to that, West built an outdoor studio in Uganda in an effort to work on his upcoming album Yandhi. On Oct. 13, 2018, photos of 'Ye’s pop-up studio located in the African country surfaced and revealed the inside of a white dome with clear windows that contained the entire studio.
As of this report, there are no images of 'Ye's Star Wars-themed homes, but you can see an example of what they may look like in the video below.
