Sci-fi associations aside, this is in no way a surprising development from West, who has a longstanding fascination with design, architects, and architecture in general, and has stated his intentions to draft buildings of his own multiple times.

West managed to go from millions of dollars in debt to "centimillionaire status" in a few years partly because he has 100 percent ownership of Yeezy, Forbes reported. The plan involves building prefabricated structures that can serve as living spaces for the homeless.

For the story, West takes writer Zack O'Malley Greenburg on a tour of of the prototypes. "They're the physical prototypes of his concept, each oblong and dozens of feet tall, and West leads me inside each one", writes Greenburg in his paper. These concrete homes will be made for low-income families, and reportedly feature the same minimalist, austere aesthetic seen in George Lucas' seminal 1977 film, complete with a dome shape and the potential for "natural light filtering in through the top".

Fans first got a glimpse into the formerly very private retreat when West shared images of the interior of the home on Twitter in April 2018 - which had Kardashian scolding her husband for showing their home on social media, later clarifying that she was only joking. This has apparently helped his team members to grow.

When asked how the process starts, West explained that, "It could start with a sketch".

West previously appeared on "The Ellen Show" to talk about his passion for making a difference in this world by using his skill set.

Kim and Kanye also have daughter North (6), son Saint (3), and daughter Chicago (1).
