American rapper Kanye West has revealed on Twitter a new image of his dome-shaped housing prototypes located in Calabasas, California, with the caption “YZY SHLTRS in process #2020VISION.”

The tweet comes over a year after the rapper first announced his plans to build the affordable homes in May 2019. In July 2019, the domes were deemed to be in violation of the building code. Three out of the four prototypes located in the wooded area at West’s 121-ha (300-acre) residence was demolished, according to a TMZ report.

This new tweet could mean West has got the required permissions and construction has resumed.

The domes were inspired by Luke Skywalker’s childhood home. West worked with a team to design the prefabricated structures with the goal of using them as low-income housing units, Forbes reported.

  1. This was tried in the ’70s and ’80s in the Xanadu project. I remember touring the one in the Wisconsin Dells as a kid. Didn’t work then as affordable housing. Interesting to see what Kanye thinks he can do better.

    1. lets be honest, he won’t… this is the guy that charges a few hundred bucks for torn tshirts after all.

      There are PLENTY of legitimate other solutions to affordable construction. The SIMPLE fact that he has curves like that in it breaks the idea of affordability and efficient space planning. End of story. People looking for affordable housing aren’t about to go buy rounded furniture to fit the curved walls of their domed house.. it’s bonkers, which is fitting, cause it’s coming from one of the most insane egotistical clowns outside of the white house
