The future of Kanye West’s YEEZY Home social housing looks uncertain after he reportedly failed to get the right building permits for his experimental California project.
Inspectors were sent out to check on the four dome homes his architecture arm is building in Calabasas after neighbours complained about noisy construction.
Despite being told the wood-framed prototypes were temporary, the inspector decided otherwise after noting their concrete foundations. West now has 45 days to acquire the appropriate building permits, before the domes are demolished.
YEEZY Home is the artist’s first foray into the world of architecture and is aimed at low-income families or possibly homeless people. He is said to have based their shape on the rounded houses of Tattooine, as seen in the first instalment of the original Star Wars trilogy.
