Kanye West on creating a sustainable design for Yeezy shoes

Lundmark Yeezy Kanye West Says He's Building Low-Income Housing Inspired By Star Wars

The clothes that Kanye West makes for his Yeezy line already look like Jedi robes from a galaxy far, far away. In a new Forbes cover story, Kanye reveals that he's working with a team of designers to create prefabricated housing units for the homeless with an aesthetic inspired by Luke Skywalker's igloo-like home on the fictional planet of Tatooine. And as detailed in a recent interview conducted by Forbes (via MovieWeb), it seems like West has drawn inspiration from an unlikely source: the world of Star Wars.

In the story, the rapper and fashion creator, takes writer Zach O'Malley Greenburg on a tour of 'oblong and dozens of feet tall' prototypes. The structures can reportedly be sunk into the ground, with light coming in from the top.

While word that Jalil Peraza, Petra Kustrin, Nejc Škufca, and Vadik Marmeladov had joined the team and renderings of at least one potential project leaked to the public soon after, there's been little additional word on Yeezy Home or any of West's other architectural plans until now. "It's of no surprise to anyone who works w Kanye that he has been able to turn millions of $ in debt into a billion dollar empire in only 4 years - 100% on his own terms while owning it 100%", she wrote on Twitter.

One of the more impressive parts of the line, however, is the agreement West struck in 2013 to move Yeezy from Nike to Adidas.
